Whitewash

WHITEWASH

hwit'wosh:

the American Revised Version margin gives "whitewash" for "untempered mortar" in Ezekiel 13:10 and 22:28. `Her prophets have daubed for them,' i.e. seconded them, "with whitewash," thus giving "a slight wall" (13:10 margin) a specious appearance of strength.

See MORTAR; UNTEMPERED.
