2:8 For she did not know [H3045] that I gave [H5414] her corn [H1715] , and wine [H8492] , and oil [H3323] , and multiplied [H7235] her silver [H3701] and gold [H2091] , [which] they prepared [H6213] for Baal [H1168] .(wine: Heb. new wine)(which: or, wherewith they made Baal)

2:12 And I will destroy [H8074] her vines [H1612] and her fig trees [H8384] , whereof she hath said [H559] , These [are] my rewards [H866] that my lovers [H157] have given [H5414] me: and I will make [H7760] them a forest [H3293] , and the beasts [H2416] of the field [H7704] shall eat [H398] them.(destroy: Heb. make desolate)
2:13 And I will visit [H6485] upon her the days [H3117] of Baalim [H1168] , wherein she burned incense [H6999] to them, and she decked [H5710] herself with her earrings [H5141] and her jewels [H2484] , and she went [H3212] after [H310] her lovers [H157] , and forgat [H7911] me, saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] .

2:16 And it shall be at that day [H3117] , saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] , [that] thou shalt call [H7121] me Ishi [H376] ; and shalt call [H7121] me no more Baali [H1180] .(Ishi: that is, My husband)(Baali: that is, My lord)
