Hosea 2:14-17 World English Bible (WEB)

14 “Therefore behold, I will allure her,
    and bring her into the wilderness,
    and speak tenderly to her.
15 I will give her vineyards from there,
    and the valley of Achor for a door of hope;
and she will respond there,
    as in the days of her youth,
    and as in the day when she came up out of the land of Egypt.
16 It will be in that day,” says Yahweh,
    “that you will call me ‘my husband,’
    and no longer call me ‘my master.’
17 For I will take away the names of the Baals out of her mouth,
    and they will no longer be mentioned by name.

Restoration of Israel

14 “Therefore, behold, I will allure her,
Bring her into the wilderness
And speak [a]kindly to her.
15 “Then I will give her her vineyards from there,
And the valley of Achor as a door of hope.
And she will [b]sing there as in the days of her youth,
As in the day when she came up from the land of Egypt.
16 “It will come about in that day,” declares the Lord,
“That you will call Me [c]Ishi
And will no longer call Me [d]Baali.
17 “For I will remove the names of the Baals from her mouth,
So that they will be [e]mentioned by their names no more.
