Abstract In Hos 2,16–17 an original prophetic saying is transmitted which is independent of Jos 7. It appeals to the wilderness experience as a time of direct intimacy with God and speaks of a second successful settlement in the land after a successful act of wooing by YHWH and Israel's explicit response. In contrast to the Pentateuch, Israel's youth and the Exodus from Egypt are a time when she followed YHWH willingly. As has happened in the past, so also for the future there is the promise of a salvific communion with YHWH. The second journey into the wilderness will establish a new relationship with YHWH, which subsequently remains undisturbed even in the cultivated land. Jer 2,2 also built on similar ideas, so that the historical setting for this kind of belief in election can be conjecturally placed in the time of Josiah.
