Hosea 3 - Versions
Hosea 3 Text (WEB)
  1. Yahweh said to me, "Go again, love a woman loved by another, and an adulteress, even as Yahweh loves the children of Israel, though they turn to other gods, and love cakes of raisins."
  2. So I bought her for myself for fifteen pieces of silver and a homer and a half of barley.
  3. I said to her, "You shall stay with me many days. You shall not play the prostitute, and you shall not be with any other man. I will also be so toward you."
  4. For the children of Israel shall live many days without king, and without prince, and without sacrifice, and without sacred stone, and without ephod or idols.
  5. Afterward the children of Israel shall return, and seek Yahweh their God, and David their king, and shall come with trembling to Yahweh and to his blessings in the last days.
Hosea 3 Text (Hebrew)
  1. ויאמר יהוה אלי עוד לך אהב־אשה אהבת רע ומנאפת כאהבת יהוה את־בני ישראל והם פנים אל־אלהים אחרים ואהבי אשישי ענבים׃
  2. ואכרה לי בחמשה עשר כסף וחמר שערים ולתך שערים׃
  3. ואמר אליה ימים רבים תשבי לי לא תזני ולא תהיי לאיש וגם־אני אליך׃
  4. כי ימים רבים ישבו בני ישראל אין מלך ואין שר ואין זבח ואין מצבה ואין אפוד ותרפים׃
  5. אחר ישבו בני ישראל ובקשו את־יהוה אלהיהם ואת דוד מלכם ופחדו אל־יהוה ואל־טובו באחרית הימים׃ ף
Hosea 3 Text (Greek)
  1. και ειπεν κυριος προς με ετι πορευθητι και αγαπησον γυναικα αγαπωσαν πονηρα και μοιχαλιν καθως αγαπα ο θεος τους υιους ισραηλ και αυτοι αποβλεπουσιν επι θεους αλλοτριους και φιλουσιν πεμματα μετα
  2. και εμισθωσαμην εμαυτω πεντεκαιδεκα αργυριου και γομορ κριθων και νεβελ
  3. και ειπα προς αυτην ημερας πολλας καθηση επ' εμοι και ου μη πορνευσης ουδε μη γενη ανδρι ετερω και εγω επι
  4. διοτι ημερας πολλας καθησονται οι υιοι ισραηλ ουκ οντος βασιλεως ουδε οντος αρχοντος ουδε ουσης θυσιας ουδε οντος θυσιαστηριου ουδε ιερατειας ουδε
  5. και μετα ταυτα επιστρεψουσιν οι υιοι ισραηλ και επιζητησουσιν κυριον τον θεον αυτων και δαυιδ τον βασιλεα αυτων και εκστησονται επι τω κυριω και επι τοις αγαθοις αυτου επ' εσχατων των
Hosea 3 Text (Latin)
  1. Et dixit Dominus ad me : Adhuc vade, et dilige mulierem dilectam amico et adulteram, sicut diligit Dominus filios Israël, et ipsi respiciunt ad deos alienos, et diligunt vinacia uvarum.
  2. Et fodi eam mihi quindecim argenteis, et coro hordei, et dimidio coro hordæi.
  3. Et dixi ad eam : Dies multos exspectabis me ; non fornicaberis, et non eris viro ; sed et ego exspectabo te.
  4. Quia dies multos sedebunt filii Israël sine rege, et sine principe, et sine sacrificio, et sine altari, et sine ephod, et sine theraphim.
  5. Et post hæc revertentur filii Israël, et quærent Dominum Deum suum, et David regem suum : et pavebunt ad Dominum, et ad bonum ejus, in novissimo dierum.
Hosea 3 Text (KJV)
  1. Then said the LORD unto me, Go yet, love a woman beloved of her friend, yet an adulteress, according to the love of the LORD toward the children of Israel, who look to other gods, and love flagons of wine.
  2. So I bought her to me for fifteen pieces of silver, and for an homer of barley, and an half homer of barley:
  3. And I said unto her, Thou shalt abide for me many days; thou shalt not play the harlot, and thou shalt not be for another man: so will I also be for thee.
  4. For the children of Israel shall abide many days without a king, and without a prince, and without a sacrifice, and without an image, and without an ephod, and without teraphim:
  5. Afterward shall the children of Israel return, and seek the LORD their God, and David their king; and shall fear the LORD and his goodness in the latter days.
Hosea 3


1 2 3 4 5


In the third chapter of Hosea, the prophet is called to go and rescue his unfaithful wife. This is symbolic of God’s repeated forgiveness.

Yahweh said to me, "Go again, love a woman loved by another, and an adulteress, even as Yahweh loves the children of Israel, though they turn to other gods, and love cakes of raisins."
