"The Greatest Love" by Doug Wens





The Greatest Love

Hosea 2:14-21
14 “Therefore I am now going to allure her;
    I will lead her into the wilderness
    and speak tenderly to her.
15 There I will give her back her vineyards,
    and will make the Valley of Achor[a] a door of hope.
There she will respond[b] as in the days of her youth,
    as in the day she came up out of Egypt.
16 “In that day,” declares the Lord,
    “you will call me ‘my husband’;
    you will no longer call me ‘my master.[c]
17 I will remove the names of the Baals from her lips;
    no longer will their names be invoked.
18 In that day I will make a covenant for them
    with the beasts of the field, the birds in the sky
    and the creatures that move along the ground.
Bow and sword and battle
    I will abolish from the land,
    so that all may lie down in safety.
19 I will betroth you to me forever;
    I will betroth you in[d] righteousness and justice,
    in[e] love and compassion.
20 I will betroth you in[f] faithfulness,
    and you will acknowledge the Lord.
21 “In that day I will respond,”
    declares the Lord
“I will respond to the skies,
    and they will respond to the earth;
