Isaiah 31:6; Jeremiah 3:1; Jeremiah 3:22; Ezekiel 18:30; Malachi 3:7

gTurn to him from whom people1 have hdeeply revolted, O children of Israel.


gIf1 a man divorces his wife

and she goes from him

and becomes another man's wife,

will he return to her?

hWould not that land be greatly polluted?

iYou have played the whore with many lovers;

and would you return to me?

declares the Lord.


22  rReturn, O faithless sons;

sI will heal your faithlessness.

Behold, we come to you,

for you are the Lord our God.


30 Therefore qI will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, declares the Lord God. rRepent and turn from all your transgressions, slest iniquity be your ruin.1


vFrom the days of your fathers you have turned aside from my statutes and have not kept them. wReturn to me, and I will return to you, says the Lord of hosts. xBut you say, How shall we return?
