Ezekiel 16:3-13 (English Standard Version)

View In My Bible
3 and say, Thus says the Lord GOD to Jerusalem: Your origin and your birth are of the land of the Canaanites; your father was an 1Amorite and your mother a 2Hittite. 4 And as for your birth, 3on the day you were born your cord was not cut, nor were you washed with water to cleanse you, nor rubbed with salt, nor wrapped in swaddling cloths. 5 No eye pitied you, to do any of these things to you out of compassion for you, 4but you were cast out on the open field, for you were abhorred, 5on the day that you were born. 6 "And when I passed by you and saw you wallowing 6in your blood, I said to you 7in your blood, 'Live!' I said to you 8in your blood, 'Live!' 7 9I made you flourish like a plant of the field. And you grew up and became tall 10and arrived at full adornment. Your breasts were formed, and your hair had grown; yet 11you were naked and bare. 8 "When I passed by you again and saw you, behold, you were at the age for love, and 12I spread the corner of my garment over you and covered your nakedness; I made my vow to you 13and entered into a covenant with you, declares the Lord GOD, 14and you became mine. 9 Then I bathed you with water and washed off your blood from you and 15anointed you with oil. 10 16I clothed you also with embroidered cloth and shod you with fine leather. I wrapped you in fine linen and covered you with silk.a 11 17And I adorned you with ornaments and 18put bracelets on your wrists and a chain on your neck. 12 And I put a ring on your nose and earrings in your ears and a beautiful crown on your head. 13 Thus you were adorned with gold and silver, and your clothing was of fine linen and silk and embroidered cloth. 19You ate fine flour and honey and oil. 20You grew exceedingly beautiful and advanced to royalty.
