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
