Hosea 2:16New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

16 Therefore,[a] I will allure her now;
    I will lead her into the wilderness
    and speak persuasively to her.

Footnotes:

  1. 2:16 Therefore: this word in Hebrew normally introduces an oracle of doom; here, surprisingly, it leads to hope. Allure: as though seducing a virgin (Ex 22:15–16). Ordinarily this word connotes deception (Jgs 14:15; 16:5; 1 Kgs 22:20–22).
