Hosea 2:2 - 2:5

“Contend with your mother, contend,
For she is not my wife, and I am not her husband;
And let her remove her harlotry from her face
And her adultery from between her breasts,
Lest I strip her naked
And set her forth as on the day when she was born
And make her like a wilderness
And make her like dry land
And put her to death with thirst.
Also, I will have no compassion on her children
Because they are children of harlotry.
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.’
