Therefore behold,[a] I will hedge up your way with thorns,
    and I will build a wall against her,
    that she can’t find her way.

    but she won’t overtake them;
and she will seek them,
    but won’t find them.
Then she will say, ‘I will go and return to my first husband;
    for then was it better with me than now.’
