New International Version (NIV)
14 “Therefore I am now going to allure her;
I will lead her into the wilderness
and speak tenderly to her.
15 There I will give her back her vineyards,
and will make the Valley of Achor[a] a door of hope.
There she will respond[b] as in the days of her youth,
as in the day she came up out of Egypt.
16 “In that day,” declares the Lord,
“you will call me ‘my husband’;
you will no longer call me ‘my master.[c]’
a)Hosea 2:15 Achor means trouble.
b)Hosea 2:15 Or sing
Hosea 2:16 Hebrew baal
A friend shared this passage with me last week. I took it and decided this will be my prayer for myself during the time I’m away. That God would speak to me tenderly and restore my vineyards.
