Hosea 2:8; Hosea 2:23; John 15:4-5

And nshe did not know

that it was oI who gave her

pthe grain, the wine, and the oil,

and who lavished on qher silver and gold,

rwhich they used for Baal.


23  and sI will sow her for myself in the land.

And tI uwill have mercy on No Mercy,1

and vI will say to Not My People,2 wYou are my people;

and he shall say, You are my God.


yAbide zin me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine; ayou are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bbears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.
