Let your fountain be blessed, and take pleasure in the wife of your youth.
Have you not lately called Me: My Father, my youthful companion?
"Then I passed by you and saw you, and you were indeed at the age for love. So I spread the edge of My garment over you and covered your nakedness. I pledged Myself to you, entered into a covenant with you, and you became Mine." [This is] the declaration of the Lord God.
"For this is what the Lord God says: I will deal with you according to what you have done, since you have despised the oath by breaking the covenant.
But I will remember the covenant I made with you in the days of your youth, and I will establish an everlasting covenant with you.
Yet you ask, "For what reason?" Because the LORD has been a witness between you and the wife of your youth. You have acted treacherously against her, though she was your marriage partner and your wife by covenant.
Didn't the one [God] make [us] with a remnant of His life-breath? And what does the One seek? A godly offspring. So watch yourselves carefully, and do not act treacherously against the wife of your youth.
"If he hates and divorces [his wife]," says the LORD God of Israel, "he covers his garment with injustice," says the LORD of Hosts. Therefore, watch yourselves carefully, and do not act treacherously.
