He said: "Son of man, this is the place of my throne1 and the place for the soles of my feet. This is where I will live among the Israelites forever. The house of Israel will never again defile2 my holy name--neither they nor their kings--by their prostitutiona and the lifeless idolsb of their kings at their high places.38
When they placed their threshold next to my threshold and their doorposts beside my doorposts, with only a wall between me and them, they defiled my holy name by their detestable practices. So I destroyed them in my anger.
Now let them put away from me their prostitution and the lifeless idols of their kings, and I will live among them forever.4
