Hosea 2:15-17 Expanded Bible (EXB)

15 There I will give her back her vineyards,
    and I will make the Valley of ·Trouble [L Achor; C see Josh. 7:1–26] a door of hope.
There she will ·respond [or sing] as ·when she was young [L in the days of her youth],
    as when she came out of Egypt.”

16 The Lord says, “In the future she[a] will call me ‘my husband’;
    no longer will she[b] call me ‘my baal [C “baal” can mean “husband,” “master,” or “Baal” (the Canaanite god); in this wordplay, Israel has replaced one husband (the Lord) with another (Baal)].’
17 I will ·never let her say [remove from her lips] the names of Baal again;
    people won’t ·use [utter; invoke; or remember] their names anymore.
