Chapter 3
Yahweh said to me, "Go again, love a man loved by another, and an adulterer, even as Yahweh loves the children of Israel, though they turn to other gods, and love cakes of raisins."
So I bought him for myself for fifteen pieces of silver and a homer and a half of barley.
I said to him, "You shall stay with me many days. You shall not play the philanderer, and you shall not be with any other woman. I will also be so toward you."
For the children of Israel shall abide many days without queen, and without princess, and without sacrifice, and without sacred stone, and without ephod or idols.
Afterward the children of Israel shall return, and seek Yahweh their God, and Davina their queen, and shall come with trembling to Yahweh and to her blessings in the last days.
