Betroth

See also Marriage

be-troth’, be-troth’ (’dras): On betrothal as a social custom see Marriage. Hosea, in his great parable of the prodigal wife, surpassed only by a greater Teacher’s parable of the Prodigal Son, uses betrothal as the symbol of Yahweh’s pledge of His love and favor to penitent Israel (Ho 2:19,20). In Ex 21:8,9 the Revised Version (British and American) renders "espouse" for the "betroth" of the King James Version, the context implying the actual marriage relation.
