Ezekiel 16:8 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

“Then I passed by you and saw you, and you were indeed at the age for love. So I spread the edge of My garment over you and covered your nakedness. I pledged Myself to you, entered into a covenant with you, and you became Mine.” This is the declaration of the Lord God.

59 “For this is what the Lord God says: I will deal with you according to what you have done, since you have despised the oath by breaking the covenant. 60 But I will remember the covenant I made with you in the days of your youth, and I will establish an everlasting covenant with you. 61 Then you will remember your ways and be ashamed when you[a] receive your older and younger sisters.

Hosea 2:16-20 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

16 In that day—
this is the Lord’s declaration—
you will call Me, “My husband,”
and no longer call Me, “My Baal.”[a]
17 For I will remove the names of the Baals
from her mouth;
they will no longer be remembered by their names.
18 On that day I will make a covenant for them
with the wild animals, the birds of the sky,
and the creatures that crawl on the ground.
I will shatter bow, sword,
and weapons of war in the land[b]
and will enable the people to rest securely.
19 I will take you to be My wife forever.
I will take you to be My wife in righteousness,
justice, love, and compassion.
20 I will take you to be My wife in faithfulness,
and you will know Yahweh.
