Abstract The call for Israel's return to YHWH resounds in the prophetic text and utilizes various images to illustrate Israel's and YHWH's behaviors. These images depict the strained relationship between YHWH and Israel and the persistence of the Deity in maintaining the relationship. This study focuses on Hosea 11 and Amos 4 as examples of the call and distinct perspectives of the YHWH-Israel behavioral and relational dynamics. It looks at the place of the past, present, and future in the formulation of the call to return and offers conclusions about the implications of the analysis on the understanding of the YHWH-Israel relationship.
