Deuteronomy 32:5-6 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Yet his degenerate children have treated him basely,
    a twisted and crooked generation!
Is this how you repay the Lord,
    so foolish and unwise a people?
Is he not your father who begot you,
    the one who made and established you?

Deuteronomy 32:18-20 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

18 You were unmindful of the Rock that begot you,
    you forgot the God who gave you birth.

19 The Lord saw and was filled with loathing,
    provoked by his sons and daughters.
20 He said, I will hide my face from them,
    and see what becomes of them.
For they are a fickle generation,
    children with no loyalty in them!

Leviticus 19:27-28 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

27 Do not clip your hair at the temples, nor spoil the edges of your beard. 28 Do not lacerate your bodies for the dead, and do not tattoo yourselves.[a] I am the Lord.

Footnotes:

  1. 19:28 Do not tattoo yourselves: see note on Gn 4:15. This prohibition probably refers only to the common ancient Near Eastern practice of branding a slave with its owner’s name as well as branding the devotees of a god with its name.

Isaiah 30:1 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Chapter 30

Oracle on the Futility of an Alliance with Egypt[a]

Ah! Rebellious children,
    oracle of the Lord,
Who carry out a plan that is not mine,
    who make an alliance[b] I did not inspire,
    thus adding sin upon sin;

Footnotes:

  1. 30:1–17 Several independent oracles against making an alliance with Egypt have been strung together in this chapter: vv. 1–5, vv. 6–7, and vv. 8–17. That these were originally separate oracles is indicated by the fact that the oracle in vv. 6–7 is still introduced by its own heading: Oracle on the Beasts of the Negeb.
  2. 30:1 Make an alliance: lit., “pour out a libation,” namely, as part of the ritual of treaty making.

    and you would never turn away from me.

Hosea 2:1 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Chapter 2

[a]The number of the Israelites
    will be like the sand of the sea,
    which can be neither measured nor counted.
Instead of being told,
    “You are Not-My-People,”
They will be called,
    “Children of the living God.”

Footnotes:

  1. 2:1–3 These verses abruptly reverse the tone of the judgments of 1:2–9 with words of hope for the covenant people: the name Jezreel is given a positive interpretation in contrast to its negative meaning in 1:4; the child named “Not-Pitied” in 1:6 is renamed “Pitied” in 2:3; the child named “Not-My-People” is renamed “My People.” The reversal of these names occurs again in 2:25.

Hosea 11:1-4 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Chapter 11

The Disappointment of a Parent

[a]When Israel was a child I loved him,
    out of Egypt[b] I called my son.
The more I called them,
    the farther they went from me,
Sacrificing to the Baals
    and burning incense to idols.
Yet it was I who taught Ephraim to walk,
    who took them in my arms;
    but they did not know that I cared for them.
I drew them with human cords,
    with bands of love;[c]
I fostered them like those
    who raise an infant to their cheeks;
    I bent down to feed them.

Footnotes:

  1. 11:1–3 After the image of husband-wife (chaps. 1–3), Hosea uses the image of parent-child (Ex 4:22; Is 1:2; Jer 3:19).
  2. 11:1 Out of Egypt: Hosea dates the real beginning of Israel from the time of the exodus. Mt 2:15 applies this text to the return of Jesus from Egypt.
  3. 11:4 I drew them…with bands of love: perhaps a reversal of the yoke imagery of the previous chapter, i.e., not forcing them like draft animals, but drawing them with kindness and affection.
