Hosea 2:4-6 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
The Lord and Israel His Spouse
4 Accuse your mother, accuse!
for she is not my wife,
and I am not her husband.
Let her remove her prostitution from her face.
her adultery from between her breasts,
5 Or I will strip her naked,
leaving her as on the day of her birth;
I will make her like the wilderness,
make her like an arid land,
and let her die of thirst.
6 I will have no pity on her children,
for they are children of prostitution.
