|Ezekiel 16:10-21,35-41 |
10 I clothed you with embroidered work and gave you sandals of fine leather, and I clothed you with fine linen and covered you with silk.
11 I also decked you with ornaments and I put bracelets on your hands and a chain on your neck.
12 And I put a jewel on your forehead and earrings in your ears and a beautiful crown upon your head.
13 Thus you were decked with gold and silver, and your raiment was of fine linen and silk and embroidered work; you ate fine flour and honey and oil. And you were exceeding beautiful, and you prospered into a kingdom.
14 And your fame went out among the heathen for your beauty for it was perfect through my splendor that I had bestowed on you,'" says the Lord GOD.
15 "But you trusted in your own beauty and played the harlot because of your fame, and poured out your fornications on anyone who passed by and your beauty became his.
16 And you took some of your garments and decked your high places [of idols] with many colors, and played the harlot there. Such things should not happen, neither should it be so.
17 You have also taken your fair jewels of my gold and silver which I had given to you and made for yourself images of men, and committed whoredom with them,
18 And took your embroidered garments to cover them, and offered my oil and my incense before them.
19 My food which I gave you — fine flour and oil and honey with which I fed you — you have even set it before them for a sweet odor. Thus it was, says the Lord GOD.
20 Moreover, you have taken your sons and your daughters whom you have borne to me, and have sacrificed them to be devoured. Were these other harlotries such a small matter,
21 That you have also slain my children and delivered them up to them by causing them to pass through the fire?
35 Therefore, O harlot, hear the word of the LORD:
36 'Thus says the Lord GOD, Because your filthiness was poured out and your nakedness discovered through your whoredoms with your lovers and with all the idols of your abominations, and because of the blood of your children which you gave to them,
37 Behold, therefore I will gather all your lovers with whom you have taken pleasure, and all those who you have loved with all those who you have hated. I will gather them against you from all around and will uncover your nakedness to them, so that they may see all your nakedness.
38 And I will judge you, as women who break wedlock and shed blood are judged, and I bring upon you the blood of my fury and jealousy.
39 And I will also give you into their hand and they shall throw down your shrines and break down your high places; they shall also strip you of your clothes and take your fair jewels and leave you naked and bare.
40 They shall also bring up a company against you, and stone you with stones and thrust you through with their swords.
41 And they shall burn your houses with fire and execute judgments upon you in the sight of many women; and I will cause you to stop playing the harlot, and you shall no longer hire lovers.
