1 Then said the Lord unto me, Go yet, love a woman (the same one, the pagans believing in false gods of their myths),
beloved of her friend, (the Romans), yet an adulteress, according to the love of the Lord, (The Christ), toward
the children of Israel, who (now) look to other gods (themselves), and love love cakes of raisins (used
in the sacrificial feasts in idol worship).
2 So I bought her to me (for 30 pieces of silver: [See Matthew 27:3, Exod. 21:7, 32; II Kings 7:1, 16, 18]), for
fifteen pieces of silver, and for an homer of barley, and an half homer of barley (the value of a woman when calculating
the fulfillment of a vow, the price of a slave: [Leviticus 27:4]):
3 And I said unto her, (these Gentile converts to Christ), Thou shalt abide for me many days (after 32 AD);
thou shalt not play the harlot, (but be Christians: [Zech 13:1,2]), and thou shalt not be for another man, (nor
god, but for Jesus: [Rev 20:4]): [I][U]so will I also be for thee.[/U][/I]
4 For the children of Israel shall abide many days without a king (after 70 AD), and without a prince, and without
a sacrifice, and without an image, and without an ephod (for prophecy: [Exodus 28:30]), and without teraphim (or
a baby doll for girls):
5 Afterward shall the children of Israel return (in 2025 AD: [Dan 12:11-12]), and seek the Lord their God, (YHVH),
and David their king, (the lamb of the root of David:[Rev 5:5]; and shall fear the Lord, (Reality), and
(Truth), his goodness, in the latter days (of the end times).
