Hosea 3 (WEBP)

[1] Yahweh said to me, “Go again, love a woman loved by another, and an adulteress, even as Yahweh loves the children of Israel, though they turn to other gods, and love cakes of raisins.”
[2] So I bought her for myself for fifteen pieces of silver and a homer° and a half of barley.
[3] I said to her, “You shall stay with me many days. You shall not play the prostitute, and you shall not be with any other man. I will also be so toward you.”
[4] For the children of Israel shall live many days without king, without prince, without sacrifice, without sacred stone, and without ephod or idols.
[5] Afterward the children of Israel shall return and seek Yahweh their God, and David their king, and shall come with trembling to Yahweh and to his blessings in the last days.

Hosea 3:2 1 homer is about 220 liters or 6 bushels

Hosea 3 (KJVS)

[1] Then said H559 (8799) the LORD H3068 unto me, Go H3212 (8798) yet, love H157 (8798) a woman H802 beloved H157 (8803) of [her] friend H7453, yet an adulteress H5003 (8764), according to the love H160 of the LORD H3068 toward the children H1121 of Israel H3478, who look H6437 (8802) to other H312 gods H430, and love H157 (8802) flagons H809 of wine H6025.
[2] So I bought H3739 (8799) her to me for fifteen H6240 H2568 [pieces] of silver H3701, and [for] an homer H2563 of barley H8184, and an half homer H3963 of barley H8184:
[3] And I said H559 (8799) unto her, Thou shalt abide H3427 (8799) for me many H7227 days H3117; thou shalt not play the harlot H2181 (8799), and thou shalt not be H1961 (8799) for [another] man H376: so [will] I also [be] for thee.
[4] For the children H1121 of Israel H3478 shall abide H3427 (8799) many H7227 days H3117 without a king H4428, and without a prince H8269, and without a sacrifice H2077, and without an image H4676, and without an ephod H646, and [without] teraphim H8655:
[5] Afterward H310 shall the children H1121 of Israel H3478 return H7725 (8799), and seek H1245 (8765) the LORD H3068 their God H430, and David H1732 their king H4428; and shall fear H6342 (8804) the LORD H3068 and his goodness H2898 in the latter H319 days H3117.

Young’s Literal Translation

Hosea 3 (YLT)

[1] And Jehovah saith unto me: ‘Again, go, love a woman, loved of a friend, and an adulteress, like the loved of Jehovah, the sons of Israel, and they are turning unto other gods, and are lovers of grape-cakes.’
[2] And I buy her to me for fifteen silverlings, and a homer and a letech of barley;
[3] and I say unto her, ‘Many days thou dost remain for Me, thou dost not go a-whoring, nor become any one’s; and I also am for thee.’
[4] For many days remain do the sons of Israel without a king, and there is no prince, and there is no sacrifice, and there is no standing pillar, and there is no ephod and teraphim.
[5] Afterwards turned back have the sons of Israel, and sought Jehovah their God, and David their king, and have hastened unto Jehovah, and unto His goodness, in the latter end of the days.
