Hosea 2:16-23 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

16 On that day, says the Lord, you will call me, “My husband,” and no longer will you call me, “My Baal.”[a] 17 For I will remove the names of the Baals from her mouth, and they shall be mentioned by name no more. 18 I will make for you[b] a covenant on that day with the wild animals, the birds of the air, and the creeping things of the ground; and I will abolish[c] the bow, the sword, and war from the land; and I will make you lie down in safety. 19 And I will take you for my wife forever; I will take you for my wife in righteousness and in justice, in steadfast love, and in mercy. 20 I will take you for my wife in faithfulness; and you shall know the Lord.

21 On that day I will answer, says the Lord,
    I will answer the heavens
    and they shall answer the earth;
22 and the earth shall answer the grain, the wine, and the oil,
    and they shall answer Jezreel;[d]
23     and I will sow him[e] for myself in the land.
And I will have pity on Lo-ruhamah,[f]
    and I will say to Lo-ammi,[g] “You are my people”;
    and he shall say, “You are my God.”
