“Oh Ephraim, what shall I do with you? Oh Judah, what shall I do with you? For your wavering love and kindness are as the night mist or as the dew that goes early away.
Therefore have I hewn down and smitten them by means of the prophets; I have slain them by the words of My mouth; My judgments are like the light that goes forth.
For I desire and delight in dutiful steadfast love and goodness, not sacrifice, and the knowledge of and acquaintance with God more than burnt offerings.”
-God speaking to His people in Hosea 6:4-6 (Amplified)
“Let your fountain of human life be blessed with the rewards of fidelity, and rejoice in the wife of your youth. Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant doe – tender, gentle, attractive – let her bosom satisfy you at all times, and always be transported with delight in her love.”
-Wisdom from Proverbs 5:18-19
