Ezekiel 23:3-13 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
3 They became prostitutes in Egypt,1 engaging in prostitution2 from their youth.3 In that land their breasts were fondled and their virgin bosoms caressed.4 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 Assyrians5--warriors6 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.7 8 She did not give up the prostitution she began in Egypt,8 when during her youth men slept with her, caressed her virgin bosom and poured out their lust upon her.9 9 "Therefore I handed her over10 to her lovers,11 the Assyrians, for whom she lusted.12 10 They stripped13 her naked, took away her sons and daughters and killed her with the sword. She became a byword among women,14 and punishment was inflicted15 on her.16 11 "Her sister Oholibah saw this,17 yet in her lust and prostitution she was more depraved than her sister.18 12 She too lusted after the Assyrians--governors and commanders, warriors in full dress, mounted horsemen, all handsome young men.19 13 I saw that she too defiled herself; both of them went the same way.20
