“Yes, (A)I have loved you with (B)an everlasting love;
Therefore with lovingkindness I have (C)drawn you.
Again (D)I will build you, and you shall be rebuilt,

And shall go forth in the dances of those who rejoice.
(F)You shall yet plant vines on the mountains of Samaria;
The planters shall plant and [b]eat them as ordinary food.
