Translating the Twelve: Hosea 2:2

Today’s “Translating the Twelve” is Hosea 2:2 (Or 1:11 in English)

2 וְ֠נִקְבְּצוּ בְּנֵֽי־יְהוּדָ֤ה וּבְנֵֽי־יִשְׂרָאֵל֙ יַחְדָּ֔ו וְשָׂמ֥וּ לָהֶ֛ם רֹ֥אשׁ אֶחָ֖ד וְעָל֣וּ מִן־הָאָ֑רֶץ כִּ֥י גָד֖וֹל י֥וֹם יִזְרְעֶֽאל׃

2. Then the people of Judah and the people of Israel will be gathered1 together and they will set2 for themselves one head and they will withdraw3 from the land because of the great day of Jezreel.

Below I’ll parse the verbs and briefly discuss some of my syntactical choices if I have time and remember.
