Hosea 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.

NET © Notes

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.”

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.

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

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