"In that day," declares the LORD, "you will call me 'my husband'; you will no longer call me 'my master.'
King James Bible
And it shall be at that day, saith the LORD, that thou shalt call me Ishi; and shalt call me no more Baali.
American Standard Version
And it shall be at that day, saith Jehovah, that thou shalt call me Ishi, and shalt call me no more Baali.
Young's Literal Translation
And it hath come to pass, in that day, An affirmation of Jehovah, Thou dost call Me -- My husband, And dost not call Me any more -- My lord.
Hosea 2:16 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Thou shalt call me Ishi - That is, my man, or my husband; a title of love and affection; and not Baali, my master, a title exciting fear and apprehension; which, howsoever good in itself, was now rendered improper to be applied to Jehovah, having been prostituted to false gods. This intimated that they should scrupulously avoid idolatry; and they had such a full proof of the inefficacy of their idolatrous worship that, after their captivity, they never more served idols.
