Hosea 2:1-3 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

[a] Say to your brother,[b] Ammi,[c] and to your sister,[d] Ruhamah.[e]

Israel’s Infidelity, Punishment, and Redemption

Plead with your mother, plead—
    for she is not my wife,
    and I am not her husband—
that she put away her whoring from her face,
    and her adultery from between her breasts,
or I will strip her naked
    and expose her as in the day she was born,
and make her like a wilderness,
    and turn her into a parched land,
    and kill her with thirst.
