*A valley near Jericho, giving access to the interior of the country and traditionally the scene of an act of disloyalty.

It will become the gateway of hope, giving access to a land restored to favour.

But look,

I am going to seduce her

and lead her into

the desert.

There I shall  give her back

her vineyards, and

make the Vale of Achor*

a gateway of hope.

Hosea 2:16,17
