Ezekiel 16

  1 H1697 Again the word H3068 of the LORD H559 [H8800] came to me, saying,
  2 H1121 Son H120 of man H3389 , cause Jerusalem H3045 [H8685] to know H8441 her abominations,
  3 H559 [H8804] And say H559 [H8804] , Thus saith H136 the Lord H3069 GOD H3389 to Jerusalem H4351 ; Thy birth H4138 and thy nativity H776 is of the land H3669 of Canaan H1 ; thy father H567 was an Amorite H517 , and thy mother H2850 an Hittite.
  4 H4138 And as for thy nativity H3117 , in the day H3205 [H8715] thou wast born H8270 thy navel H3772 [H8795] was not cut H7364 [H8795] , neither wast thou washed H4325 in water H4935 to cleanse H4414 [H8717] thee; thou wast not salted H4414 [H8715] at all H2853 [H8795] , nor swaddled H2853 [H8715] at all.
  5 H5869 No eye H2347 [H8804] pitied H6213 [H8800] thee, to do H259 any H2550 [H8800] of these to thee, to have compassion H7993 [H8714] upon thee; but thou wast cast out H6440 in the open H7704 field H1604 , to the lothing H5315 of thy person H3117 , in the day H3205 [H8715] that thou wast born.
  6 H5674 [H8799] And when I passed H7200 [H8799] by thee, and saw H947 [H8711] thee polluted H1818 in thy own blood H559 [H8799] , I said H1818 to thee when thou wast in thy blood H2421 [H8798] , Live H559 [H8799] ; yea, I said H1818 to thee when thou wast in thy blood H2421 [H8798] , Live.
  7 H5414 [H8804] I have caused H7233 thee to multiply H6780 as the bud H7704 of the field H7235 [H8799] , and thou hast increased H1431 [H8799] and become great H935 [H8799] , and thou art come H5716 to excellent H5716 ornaments H7699 : thy breasts H3559 [H8738] are fashioned H8181 , and thy hair H6779 [H8765] is grown H5903 , though thou wast naked H6181 and bare.
  8 H5674 [H8799] Now when I passed H7200 [H8799] by thee, and looked H6256 upon thee, behold, thy time H6256 was the time H1730 of love H6566 [H8799] ; and I spread H3671 my skirt H3680 [H8762] over thee, and covered H6172 thy nakedness H7650 [H8735] : yea, I swore H935 [H8799] to thee, and entered H1285 into a covenant H5002 [H8803] with thee, saith H136 the Lord H3069 GOD, and thou becamest mine.
  9 H7364 [H8799] Then I washed H4325 thee with water H7857 [H8799] ; yea, I thoroughly washed away H1818 thy blood H5480 [H8799] from thee, and I anointed H8081 thee with oil.
  10 H3847 [H8686] I clothed H7553 thee also with embroidered work H5274 [H8799] , and shod H8476 thee with badgers' skin H2280 [H8799] , and I girded H8336 thee with fine linen H3680 [H8762] , and I covered H4897 thee with silk.
  11 H5710 [H8799] I decked H5716 thee also with ornaments H5414 [H8799] , and I put H6781 bracelets H3027 upon thy hands H7242 , and a chain H1627 on thy neck.
  12 H5414 [H8799] And I put H5141 a jewel H639 on thy forehead H5694 , and earrings H241 in thy ears H8597 , and a beautiful H5850 crown H7218 upon thy head.
  13 H5710 [H8799] Thus wast thou decked H2091 with gold H3701 and silver H4403 ; and thy raiment H8336 H8336 [H8675] was of fine linen H4897 , and silk H7553 , and embroidered work H398 [H8804] ; thou didst eat H5560 fine flour H1706 , and honey H8081 , and oil H3966 : and thou wast exceeding H3302 [H8799] beautiful H6743 [H8799] , and thou didst prosper H4410 into a kingdom.
  14 H8034 And thy renown H3318 [H8799] went forth H1471 among the heathen H3308 for thy beauty H3632 : for it was perfect H1926 through my comeliness H7760 [H8804] , which I had put H5002 [H8803] upon thee, saith H136 the Lord H3069 GOD.
  15 H982 [H8799] But thou didst trust H3308 in thy own beauty H2181 [H8799] , and didst play the harlot H8034 because of thy renown H8210 [H8799] , and didst pour out H8457 thy harlotries H5674 [H8802] on every one that passed by; his it was.
  16 H899 And of thy garments H3947 [H8799] thou didst take H6213 [H8799] , and didst deck H1116 thy high places H2921 [H8803] with various colours H2181 [H8799] , and didst play the harlot H935 [H8802] upon them: the like things shall not come, neither shall it be so.
  17 H3947 [H8799] Thou hast also taken H8597 thy fair H3627 jewels H2091 of my gold H3701 and of my silver H5414 [H8804] , which I had given H6213 [H8799] thee, and hast made H6754 to thyself images H2145 of men H2181 [H8799] , and hast committed harlotry with them,
  18 H3947 [H8799] And hast taken H7553 thy embroidered H899 garments H3680 [H8762] , and didst cover H5414 [H8804] them: and thou hast set H8081 my oil H7004 and my incense H6440 before them.
  19 H3899 My food H5414 [H8804] also which I gave H5560 thee, fine flour H8081 , and oil H1706 , and honey H398 [H8689] , with which I fed H5414 [H8804] thee, thou hast even set H6440 before H5207 them for a sweet H7381 savour H5002 [H8803] : and thus it was, saith H136 the Lord H3069 GOD.
  20 H3947 [H8799] Moreover thou hast taken H1121 thy sons H1323 and thy daughters H3205 [H8804] , whom thou hast borne H2076 [H8799] to me, and these hast thou sacrificed H398 [H8800] to them to be devoured H8457 . Is this of thy harlotries H4592 a small matter,
  21 H7819 [H8799] That thou hast slain H1121 my children H5414 [H8799] , and delivered H5674 [H8687] them to cause them to pass through the fire for them?
  22 H8441 And in all thy abominations H8457 and thy harlotries H2142 [H8804] thou hast not remembered H3117 the days H5271 of thy youth H5903 , when thou wast naked H6181 and bare H947 [H8711] , and wast polluted H1818 in thy blood.
  23 H310 And it came to pass after H7451 all thy wickedness H188 , (woe H188 , woe H5002 [H8803] to thee! saith H136 the Lord H3069 GOD;)
  24 H1129 [H8799] That thou hast also built H1354 to thee an eminent place H6213 [H8799] , and hast made H7413 thee an high place H7339 in every street.
  25 H1129 [H8804] Thou hast built H7413 thy high place H7218 at every head H1870 of the way H3308 , and hast made thy beauty H8581 [H8762] to be abhorred H6589 H7272 [H8762] , and hast offered thyself H5674 [H8802] to every one that passed by H7235 [H8686] , and multiplied H8457 thy harlotries.
  26 H2181 [H8799] Thou hast also committed harlotry H1121 H4714 with the Egyptians H7934 thy neighbours H1432 , great H1320 of flesh H7235 [H8686] ; and hast multiplied H8457 thy harlotry H3707 [H8687] , to provoke me to anger.
  27 H5186 [H8804] Behold, therefore I have stretched out H3027 my hand H1639 [H8799] over thee, and have diminished H2706 thy ordinary H5414 [H8799] food, and delivered H5315 thee to the will H8130 [H8802] of them that hate H1323 thee, the daughters H6430 of the Philistines H3637 [H8737] , who are ashamed H2154 of thy lewd H1870 way.
  28 H2181 [H8799] Thou hast played the harlot H1121 H804 also with the Assyrians H1115 , because H7646 [H8804] thou wast not satisfied H2181 [H8799] ; yea, thou hast played the harlot H7654 with them, and yet couldest not be satisfied.
  29 H7235 [H8686] Thou hast moreover multiplied H8457 thy harlotry H776 in the land H3667 of Canaan H3778 to Chaldea H2063 ; and yet with this H7646 [H8804] thou wast not satisfied.
  30 H535 [H8802] How weak H3826 is thy heart H5002 [H8803] , saith H136 the Lord H3069 GOD H6213 [H8800] , seeing thou doest H4639 all these things, the work H7986 of an imperious H2181 H802 [H8803] harlot;
  31 H1129 [H8800] In that thou buildest H1354 thy eminent place H7218 in the head H1870 of every way H6213 [H8804] , and makest H7413 thy high place H7339 in every street H2181 [H8802] ; and hast not been as an harlot H7046 [H8763] , in that thou scornest H868 hire;
  32 H802 But as a wife H5003 [H8764] that committeth adultery H3947 [H8799] , who taketh H2114 [H8801] strangers H376 instead of her husband!
  33 H5414 [H8799] They give H5078 gifts H2181 [H8802] to all harlots H5414 [H8804] : but thou givest H5083 thy gifts H157 [H8764] to all thy lovers H7809 [H8799] , and hirest H935 [H8800] them, that they may come H5439 to thee on every side H8457 for thy harlotry.
  34 H2016 And thou art the opposite H802 from other women H8457 in thy harlotries H310 , though none followeth H2181 [H8795] thee to commit harlotries H5414 [H8800] : and in that thou givest H868 a reward H868 , and no reward H5414 [H8738] is given H1961 [H8799] to thee, therefore thou art H2016 the opposite.
  35 H2181 [H8802] Therefore, O harlot H8085 [H8798] , hear H1697 the word H3068 of the LORD:
  36 H559 [H8804] Thus saith H136 the Lord H3069 GOD H5178 ; Because thy filthiness H8210 [H8736] was poured out H6172 , and thy nakedness H1540 [H8735] uncovered H8457 through thy harlotries H157 [H8764] with thy lovers H1544 , and with all the idols H8441 of thy abominations H1818 , and by the blood H1121 of thy children H5414 [H8804] , which thou didst give to them;
  37 H6908 [H8764] Behold, therefore I will gather H157 [H8764] all thy lovers H6149 [H8804] , with whom thou hast taken pleasure H157 [H8804] , and all them that thou hast loved H8130 [H8804] , with all them that thou hast hated H6908 [H8765] ; I will even gather H5439 them on every side H1540 [H8765] against thee, and will uncover H6172 thy nakedness H7200 [H8804] to them, that they may see H6172 all thy nakedness.
  38 H8199 [H8804] And I will judge H5003 [H8802] thee, as women that break wedlock H8210 [H8802] and shed H1818 blood H4941 are judged H5414 [H8804] ; and I will give H1818 thee blood H2534 in fury H7068 and jealousy.
  39 H5414 [H8804] And I will also give H3027 thee into their hand H2040 [H8804] , and they shall throw down H1354 thy eminent place H5422 [H8765] , and shall break down H7413 thy high places H6584 [H8689] : they shall strip H899 thee also of thy clothes H3947 [H8804] , and shall take H8597 thy fair H3627 jewels H3240 [H8689] , and leave H5903 thee naked H6181 and bare.
  40 H5927 [H8689] They shall also bring up H6951 a company H7275 [H8804] against thee, and they shall stone H68 thee with stones H1333 [H8765] , and thrust thee through H2719 with their swords.
  41 H8313 [H8804] And they shall burn H1004 thy houses H784 with fire H6213 [H8804] , and execute H8201 judgments H5869 upon thee in the sight H7227 of many H802 women H7673 [H8689] : and I will cause thee to cease H2181 [H8802] from playing the harlot H5414 [H8799] , and thou also shalt give H868 no hire any more.
  42 H2534 So will I make my fury H5117 [H8689] toward thee to rest H7068 , and my jealousy H5493 [H8804] shall depart H8252 [H8804] from thee, and I will be quiet H3707 [H8799] , and will be no more angry.
  43 H2142 [H8804] Because thou hast not remembered H3117 the days H5271 of thy youth H7264 [H8799] , but hast provoked H1887 me in all these things; behold H5414 [H8804] , therefore I also will recompense H1870 thy way H7218 upon thy head H5002 [H8803] , saith H136 the Lord H3069 GOD H6213 [H8804] : and thou shalt not commit H2154 this lewdness H8441 above all thy abominations.
  44 H4911 [H8802] Behold, every one that useth proverbs H4911 [H8799] shall use this proverb H559 [H8800] against thee, saying H517 , As is the mother H1323 , so is her daughter.
  45 H517 Thou art thy mother's H1323 daughter H1602 [H8802] , that lotheth H376 her husband H1121 and her children H269 ; and thou art the sister H269 of thy sisters H1602 [H8804] , who lothed H582 their husbands H1121 and their children H517 : your mother H2850 was an Hittite H1 , and your father H567 an Amorite.
  46 H1419 And thy elder H269 sister H8111 is Samaria H1323 , she and her daughters H3427 [H8802] that dwell H8040 at thy left hand H6996 : and thy younger H269 sister H3427 [H8802] , that dwelleth H3225 at thy right hand H5467 , is Sodom H1323 and her daughters.
  47 H1980 [H8804] Yet hast thou not walked H1870 after their ways H6213 [H8804] , nor done H8441 after their abominations H6985 : but, as if that were a very H4592 H6962 [H8804] little H7843 [H8686] thing, thou wast corrupted H2004 more than they H1870 in all thy ways.
  48 H2416 As I live H5002 [H8803] , saith H136 the Lord H3069 GOD H5467 , Sodom H269 thy sister H6213 [H8804] hath not done H1323 , she nor her daughters H6213 [H8804] , as thou hast done H1323 , thou and thy daughters.
  49 H5771 Behold, this was the iniquity H269 of thy sister H5467 Sodom H1347 , pride H7653 , fulness H3899 of bread H7962 , and abundance H8252 [H8687] of idleness H1323 was in her and in her daughters H2388 [H8689] , neither did she strengthen H3027 the hand H6041 of the poor H34 and needy.
  50 H1361 [H8799] And they were haughty H6213 [H8799] , and committed H8441 abomination H6440 before H5493 [H8686] me: therefore I took them away H7200 [H8804] as I saw good.
  51 H8111 Neither hath Samaria H2398 [H8804] committed H2677 half H2403 of thy sins H7235 [H8686] ; but thou hast multiplied H8441 thy abominations H2007 more than they H6663 [H8762] , and hast justified H269 thy sisters H8441 in all thy abominations H6213 [H8804] which thou hast done.
  52 H6419 [H8765] Thou also, who hast judged H269 thy sisters H5375 [H8798] , bear H3639 thy own shame H2403 for thy sins H8581 [H8689] that thou hast committed more abominable H2004 than they H6663 [H8799] : they are more righteous H954 [H8798] than thou: yea, be thou confounded H5375 [H8798] also, and bear H3639 thy shame H6663 [H8763] , in that thou hast justified H269 thy sisters.
  53 H7725 [H8804] When I shall bring again H7622 H7622 [H8675] their captivity H7622 H7622 [H8675] , the captivity H5467 of Sodom H1323 and her daughters H7622 H7622 [H8676] , and the captivity H8111 of Samaria H1323 and her daughters H7622 H7622 [H8675] , then will I bring again the captivity H7622 of thy captives H8432 in the midst of them:
  54 H5375 [H8799] That thou mayest bear H3639 thy own shame H3637 [H8738] , and mayest be confounded H6213 [H8804] in all that thou hast done H5162 [H8763] , in that thou art a comfort to them.
  55 H269 When thy sisters H5467 , Sodom H1323 and her daughters H7725 [H8799] , shall return H6927 to their former state H8111 , and Samaria H1323 and her daughters H7725 [H8799] shall return H6927 to their former state H1323 , then thou and thy daughters H7725 [H8799] shall return H6927 to your former state.
  56 H269 For thy sister H5467 Sodom H8052 was not mentioned H6310 by thy mouth H3117 in the day H1347 of thy pride,
  57 H7451 Before thy wickedness H1540 [H8735] was discovered H6256 , as at the time H2781 of thy reproach H1323 of the daughters H758 of Syria H5439 , and all that are around H1323 her, the daughters H6430 of the Philistines H7590 [H8801] , who despise H5439 thee on every side.
  58 H5375 [H8804] Thou hast borne H2154 thy lewdness H8441 and thy abominations H5002 [H8803] , saith H3068 the LORD.
  59 H559 [H8804] For thus saith H136 the Lord H3069 GOD H6213 [H8804] ; I will even deal H6213 [H8804] with thee as thou hast done H959 [H8804] , who hast despised H423 the oath H6565 [H8687] in breaking H1285 the covenant.
  60 H2142 [H8804] Nevertheless I will remember H1285 my covenant H3117 with thee in the days H5271 of thy youth H6965 [H8689] , and I will establish H5769 to thee an everlasting H1285 covenant.
  61 H2142 [H8804] Then thou shalt remember H1870 thy ways H3637 [H8738] , and be ashamed H3947 [H8800] , when thou shalt receive H269 thy sisters H1419 , thy elder H6996 and thy younger H5414 [H8804] : and I will give H1323 them to thee for daughters H1285 , but not by thy covenant.
  62 H6965 [H8689] And I will establish H1285 my covenant H3045 [H8804] with thee; and thou shalt know H3068 that I am the LORD:
  63 H2142 [H8799] That thou mayest remember H954 [H8804] , and be confounded H6610 , and never open H6310 thy mouth H6440 any more because H3639 of thy shame H3722 [H8763] , when I am pacified H6213 [H8804] toward thee for all that thou hast done H5002 [H8803] , saith H136 the Lord H3069 GOD.
