Two Adulterous Sisters

1 The word of the LORD came to me: 2 "Son of man, there were two women, daughters of the same mother.1 3 They became prostitutes in Egypt,2 engaging in prostitution3 from their youth.4 In that land their breasts were fondled and their virgin bosoms caressed.5 4 The older was named Oholah, and her sister was Oholibah. They were mine and gave birth to sons and daughters. Oholah is Samaria, and Oholibah is Jerusalem.#cr 5 "Oholah engaged in prostitution while she was still mine; and she lusted after her lovers, the Assyrians6--warriors7 6 clothed in blue, governors and commanders, all of them handsome young men, and mounted horsemen. 7 She gave herself as a prostitute to all the elite of the Assyrians and defiled herself with all the idols of everyone she lusted after.8 8 She did not give up the prostitution she began in Egypt,9 when during her youth men slept with her, caressed her virgin bosom and poured out their lust upon her.10 9 "Therefore I handed her over11 to her lovers,12 the Assyrians, for whom she lusted.13 10 They stripped14 her naked, took away her sons and daughters and killed her with the sword. She became a byword among women,15 and punishment was inflicted16 on her.17
