Hosea 2:15

Context

2:15 From there I will give back her vineyards to her,

and turn the “Valley of Trouble” 1  into an “Opportunity 2  for Hope.”

There she will sing as she did when she was young, 3 

when 4  she came up from the land of Egypt.

1 tn Heb “Valley of Achor,” so named because of the unfortunate incident recorded in Josh 7:1-26 (the name is explained in v. 26; the Hebrew term Achor means “disaster” or “trouble”). Cf. TEV, CEV “Trouble Valley.”

2 tn Heb “door” or “doorway”; cf. NLT “gateway.” Unlike the days of Joshua, when Achan’s sin jeopardized Israel’s mission and cast a dark shadow over the nation, Israel’s future return to the land will be marked by renewed hope.

3 tn Heb “as in the days of her youth” (so NAB, NIV, NRSV).

4 tn Heb “as in the day when” (so KJV, NASB).
