New King James Version
21 “It shall come to pass in that day
That (A)I will answer,” says the Lord;
“I will answer the heavens,
And they shall answer the earth.
22 The earth shall answer
With new wine,
And with oil;
They shall answer [a]Jezreel.
23 Then (B)I will sow her for Myself in the earth,
(C)And I will have mercy on her who had [b]not obtained mercy;
Then (D)I will say to those who were [c]not My people,
‘You are [d]My people!’
And they shall say, ‘You are my God!’ ”
Israel Will Return to God
3 Then the Lord said to me, “Go again, love a woman who is loved by a (E)lover[e] and is committing adultery, just like the love of the Lord for the children of Israel, who look to other gods and love the raisin cakes of the pagans.”
2 So I bought her for myself for fifteen shekels of silver, and one and one-half homers of barley. 3 And I said to her, “You shall (F)stay with me many days; you shall not play the harlot, nor shall you have a man—so, too, will I be toward you.”
4 For the children of Israel shall abide many days (G)without king or prince, without sacrifice or sacred pillar, without (H)ephod or (I)teraphim. 5 Afterward the children of Israel shall return and (J)seek the Lord their God and (K)David their king. They shall fear the Lord and His goodness in the (L)latter days.
