Pristine Grace

Hos 2:1-13, (KJV)
1  Say ye unto your brethren, Ammi; and to your sisters, Ruhamah.
2  Plead with your mother, plead: for she is not my wife, neither am I her husband: let her therefore put away her whoredoms out of her sight, and her adulteries from between her breasts;
3  Lest I strip her naked, and set her as in the day that she was born, and make her as a wilderness, and set her like a dry land, and slay her with thirst.
4  And I will not have mercy upon her children; for they be the children of whoredoms.
5  For their mother hath played the harlot: she that conceived them hath done shamefully: for she said, I will go after my lovers, that give me my bread and my water, my wool and my flax, mine oil and my drink.
6  Therefore, behold, I will hedge up thy way with thorns, and make a wall, that she shall not find her paths.
7  And she shall follow after her lovers, but she shall not overtake them; and she shall seek them, but shall not find them: then shall she say, I will go and return to my first husband; for then was it better with me than now.
8  For she did not know that I gave her corn, and wine, and oil, and multiplied her silver and gold, which they prepared for Baal.
9  Therefore will I return, and take away my corn in the time thereof, and my wine in the season thereof, and will recover my wool and my flax given to cover her nakedness.
10  And now will I discover her lewdness in the sight of her lovers, and none shall deliver her out of mine hand.
11  I will also cause all her mirth to cease, her feast days, her new moons, and her sabbaths, and all her solemn feasts.
12  And I will destroy her vines and her fig trees, whereof she hath said, These are my rewards that my lovers have given me: and I will make them a forest, and the beasts of the field shall eat them.
13  And I will visit upon her the days of Baalim, wherein she burned incense to them, and she decked herself with her earrings and her jewels, and she went after her lovers, and forgat me, saith the LORD.

Hos 2:1-13, (MKJV)
1  Say to your brothers, A People; and to your sisters, Mercy.
2  Contend! Contend with your mother, for she is not my wife, nor am I her husband. Let her therefore put away her fornications out of her sight, and her adulteries from between her breasts,
3  lest I strip her naked and set her out as in the day that she was born; and lest I make her as the wilderness, and set her like a dry land, and slay her with thirst.
4  And I will not have mercy on her sons, for they are the sons of adulteries.
5  For their mother has prostituted herself . She who conceived them has done shamefully. For she said, I will go after my lovers who give my bread and my water, my wool and my flax, my oil and my drink.
6  Therefore behold, I will hedge your way with thorns, and wall up her wall, that she shall not find her paths.
7  And she shall follow after her lovers, but she shall not overtake them. She shall seek them, but shall not find them . Then she shall say, I will go and return to my first husband, for then it was better with me than now.
8  For she did not know that I gave her grain, and wine, and oil, and multiplied her silver and gold, which they prepared for Baal.
9  So I will return and take away My grain in its time, and my wine in its season, and will recover my wool and my flax given to cover her nakedness.
10  And now I will uncover her shamefulness in the sight of her lovers, and none shall deliver her out of my hand.
11  I will also cause all her joy to cease, her feast days, her new moons, and her sabbaths, and all her appointed feasts.
12  And I will destroy her vines and her fig trees, of which she has said, They are my rewards that my lovers have given me. And I will make them a forest, and the beasts of the field shall eat them.
13  And I will visit on her the days of the Baals, in which she burned incense to them, and she adorned herself with her nose-rings and her jewels, and she went after her lovers and forgot Me, says the LORD.

Hos 2:1-13, (NASB)
1  Say to your brothers, "Ammi," and to your sisters, "Ruhamah."
2  "Contend with your mother, contend, For she is not my wife, and I am not her husband; And let her put away her harlotry from her face And her adultery from between her breasts,
3  Or I will strip her naked And expose her as on the day when she was born. I will also make her like a wilderness, Make her like desert land And slay her with thirst.
4  "Also, I will have no compassion on her children, Because they are children of harlotry.
5  "For their mother has played the harlot; She who conceived them has acted shamefully. For she said, 'I will go after my lovers, Who give me my bread and my water, My wool and my flax, my oil and my drink.'
6  "Therefore, behold, I will hedge up her way with thorns, And I will build a wall against her so that she cannot find her paths.
7  "She will pursue her lovers, but she will not overtake them; And she will seek them, but will not find them. Then she will say, 'I will go back to my first husband, For it was better for me then than now!'
8  "For she does not know that it was I who gave her the grain, the new wine and the oil, And lavished on her silver and gold, Which they used for Baal.
9  "Therefore, I will take back My grain at harvest time And My new wine in its season. I will also take away My wool and My flax Given to cover her nakedness.
10  "And then I will uncover her lewdness In the sight of her lovers, And no one will rescue her out of My hand.
11  "I will also put an end to all her gaiety, Her feasts, her new moons, her sabbaths And all her festal assemblies.
12  "I will destroy her vines and fig trees, Of which she said, 'These are my wages Which my lovers have given me.' And I will make them a forest, And the beasts of the field will devour them.
13  "I will punish her for the days of the Baals When she used to offer sacrifices to them And adorn herself with her earrings and jewelry, And follow her lovers, so that she forgot Me," declares the Lord.

Hos 2:1-13, (LITV)
1  Say to your brothers, A people; and to your sisters, Mercy.
2  Strive! Strive with your mother, for she is not My wife, and I am not her husband. Therefore, let her put away her harlotries from her face, and her adulteries from between her breasts,
3  that I not strip her naked and set her out as in the day that she was born, and make her as the wilderness, and place her like a dry land, and kill her with thirst.
4  And I will not have pity for her sons, for they are the sons of harlotries.
5  For their mother has prostituted herself; she who conceived them has acted shamefully. For she said, I will go after my lovers who give my bread and my water, my wool and my flax, my oil and my drink.
6  Therefore, behold, I will hedge your way with thorns, and I will wall up her wall, that she shall not find her paths.
7  And she shall follow after her lovers, but she shall not overtake them. And she shall look for them, but she shall not find them. Then she shall say, I will go and return to my first husband, for then it was better with me than now.
8  For she did not know that I gave her grain and wine and oil, and I multiplied her silver and the gold they prepared for Baal.
9  So I will return and take My grain in its time, and My wine in its season. And I will take back My wool and My flax she uses to cover her nakedness.
10  And now I will reveal her shamefulness to the eyes of her lovers, and not a man shall deliver her out of My hand.
11  I will also cause all her joy to cease, her feast days, her new moons, and her sabbaths, and all her solemn feasts.
12  And I will destroy her vines and her fig trees, of which she has said, They are my rewards that my lovers have given me. And I will set them for a forest, and the beasts of the field shall eat them.
13  And I will visit on her the days of the Baals in which she burned incense to them. Yea, she adorned herself with her nose rings, and her jewels, and she went after her lovers and forgot Me, says Jehovah.
