Bible: Hosea 2:21-23

Agricultural Fertility Restored to the Repentant Nation

2:21At that time, 1  I will willingly respond,” 2  declares the Lord.

“I will respond to the sky,

and the sky 3  will respond to the ground;

2:22 then the ground will respond to the grain, the new wine, and the olive oil;

and they will respond to ‘God Plants’ (Jezreel)! 4 

2:23 Then I will plant her as my own 5  in the land.

I will have pity on ‘No Pity’ (Lo-Ruhamah).

I will say to ‘Not My People(Lo-Ammi), ‘You are my people!’

And he 6  will say, ‘You are 7  my God!’
