Hosea 2:13 (Hebrew in bold)

New King James Version (NKJV)

13 I will punish her For the days of ‘the Baals’ (the Lords, the Owners, etc..) to which she burned incense. She decked herself with her earrings and jewelry, And went after her lovers; But ‘Me’ (YHWH – in context: the Name, Word and Works, of Israel’s ‘Elohiym) she forgot,” says ‘the Lord’ (ha-YHWH: the-Name, Word and Works, of Israel’s ‘Elohiym).

Definitions:

Baal [Adonai or L-rd]: Baal, god worshipped in many ancient Middle Eastern communities, especially among the Canaanites, who apparently considered him a fertility deity and one of the most important gods in the pantheon. As a Semitic common noun baal (Hebrew baʿal) meant “owner” or “lord,” etc… See source: Baal-ancient-deity

‘Ha-Adonai’ (‘The L-rd’): In Scripture, the title that replaces ‘YHWH’, the name of Abraham’s ‘Elohiym, some 7000 times.  

“YHWH is probably derived from the Hebrew triconsonantal root היה (h-y-h), “to be, become, come to pass”, with a third person masculine y- prefix, equivalent to English “he”.[6][8][9] It is connected to the passage in Exodus 3:14 in which ‘God’ (Elohiym: [the] Magistrates, Great, Mighty – ones, etc..) gives ‘his’ (‘iysh: the stewards’, etc..) name as אֶהְיֶה אֲשֶׁר אֶהְיֶה (Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh / YHWH), where the relative pronoun asher (“that”, “who”, “which”, and “where”) is between two instances of the first person singular imperfect of the verb hayah (“to be”). Ehyeh is often, but not always, translated as “I will be”, while the relative pronoun can have several meanings: “I will be that/who/which/where I will be”. It is maybe translated most basically as “I Am that/who/which/where I Am“, [THE NAME THAT DEFINES ‘the Word and Works of Israel’s ‘Elohiym’; ‘the true ‘Elohiym] or “I shall be what I shall be”, “I shall be what I am”[10] or יהוה [YHWH]….
