The Book of the Prophet Hosea    2: 16-18, 21-22

2:16 And it will be in that day,” says the Lord, “that she will call me, ‘My Husband,’ and she will no longer call me, ‘My Baal.’
2:17 And I will remove the names of the Baals from her mouth, and she will no longer remember their name.
2:18 And in that day, I will strike a deal with them, with the beasts of the field, and with the birds of the sky, and with the creatures of the earth. And I will crush the bow and the sword, and I will wipe away war from the earth. And I will let them sleep securely.
2:21 And this will happen in that day: I will listen closely,” says the Lord. “I will hear the heavens, and they will hear the earth.
2:22 And the land will pay attention to the grain, and the wine, and the oil; and these will hear Jezreel.
