Ezekiel 23

  1 H1697 The word H3068 of the LORD H559 [H8800] came again to me, saying,
  2 H1121 Son H120 of man, H8147 there were two H802 women, H1323 the daughters H259 of one H517 mother:
  3 H2181 [H8799] And they committed harlotries H4714 in Egypt; H2181 [H8804] they committed harlotries H5271 in their youth: H7699 there were their breasts H4600 [H8795] pressed, H6213 [H8765] and there they bruised H1717 the teats H1331 of their virginity.
  4 H8034 And the names H170 of them were Aholah H1419 the elder, H172 and Aholibah H269 her sister: H3205 [H8799] and they were mine, and they bore H1121 sons H1323 and daughters. H8034 Thus were their names; H8111 Samaria H170 is Aholah, H3389 and Jerusalem H172 Aholibah.
  5 H170 And Aholah H2181 [H8799] played the harlot H8478 when she was mine; H5689 [H8799] and she doted H157 [H8764] on her lovers, H804 on the Assyrians H7138 her neighbours,
  6 H3847 [H8803] Who were clothed H8504 with blue, H6346 captains H5461 and rulers, H2531 all of them desirable H970 young men, H6571 horsemen H7392 [H8802] riding H5483 upon horses.
  7 H5414 [H8799] Thus she committed H8457 her harlotries H4005 with them, with all them that were the chosen H1121 men H804 of Assyria, H5689 [H8804] and with all on whom she doted: H1544 with all their idols H2930 [H8738] she defiled herself.
  8 H5800 [H8804] Neither left H8457 she her harlotries H4714 brought from Egypt: H5271 for in her youth H7901 [H8804] they lay H6213 [H8765] with her, and they bruised H1717 the breasts H1331 of her virginity, H8210 [H8799] and poured H8457 their harlotry upon her.
  9 H5414 [H8804] Therefore I have given H3027 her into the hand H157 [H8764] of her lovers, H3027 into the hand H1121 H804 of the Assyrians, H5689 [H8804] upon whom she doted.
  10 H1540 [H8765] These uncovered H6172 her nakedness: H3947 [H8804] they took H1121 her sons H1323 and her daughters, H2026 [H8804] and slew H2719 her with the sword: H8034 and she became a byword H802 among women; H6213 [H8804] for they had executed H8196 judgment upon her.
  11 H269 And when her sister H172 Aholibah H7200 [H8799] saw H7843 [H8686] this, she was more decayed H5691 in her inordinate love H8457 than she, and in her harlotries H269 more than her sister H2183 in her harlotries.
  12 H5689 [H8804] She doted H1121 H804 upon the Assyrians H7138 her neighbours, H6346 captains H5461 and rulers H3847 [H8803] clothed H4358 most gorgeously, H6571 horsemen H7392 [H8802] riding H5483 upon horses, H2531 all of them desirable H970 young men.
  13 H7200 [H8799] Then I saw H2930 [H8738] that she was defiled, H8147 that they took both H259 one H1870 way,
  14 H3254 [H8686] And that she increased H8457 her harlotries: H7200 [H8799] for when she saw H582 men H2707 [H8794] carved H7023 upon the wall, H6754 the images H3778 of the Chaldeans H2710 [H8803] engraved H8350 with vermilion,
  15 H2289 Girded H232 with belts H4975 upon their loins, H5628 [H8803] flowing H2871 turbans H7218 upon their heads, H7991 all of them princes H4758 to look to, H1823 after the manner H1121 H894 of the Babylonians H3778 of Chaldea, H776 the land H4138 of their nativity:
  16 H4758 And as soon as she saw H5869 them with her eyes, H5689 [H8799] she doted H7971 [H8799] upon them, and sent H4397 messengers H3778 to them into Chaldea.
  17 H1121 H894 And the Babylonians H935 [H8799] came H4904 to her into the bed H1730 of love, H2930 [H8762] and they defiled H8457 her with their harlotry, H2930 [H8799] and she was polluted H5315 with them, and her breath H3363 [H8799] was dislocated from them.
  18 H1540 [H8762] So she revealed H8457 her harlotries, H1540 [H8762] and uncovered H6172 her nakedness: H5315 then my breath H3363 [H8799] was dislocated H5315 from her, as my breath H5361 [H8804] was alienated H269 from her sister.
  19 H7235 [H8686] Yet she multiplied H8457 her harlotries, H2142 [H8800] in calling to remembrance H3117 the days H5271 of her youth, H2181 [H8804] when she had played the harlot H776 in the land H4714 of Egypt.
  20 H5689 [H8799] For she doted H6370 upon their paramours, H1320 whose flesh H1320 is as the flesh H2543 of donkeys, H2231 and whose issue H2231 is like the issue H5483 of horses.
  21 H6485 [H8799] Thus thou didst call to remembrance H2154 the lewdness H5271 of thy youth, H6213 [H8800] in bruising H1717 thy teats H4714 by the Egyptians H7699 for the breasts H5271 of thy youth.
  22 H172 Therefore, O Aholibah, H559 [H8804] thus saith H136 the Sovereign H3069 LORD; H5782 [H8688] Behold, I will raise up H157 [H8764] thy lovers H5315 against thee, from whom thy breath H5361 [H8804] is alienated, H935 [H8689] and I will bring H5439 them against thee on every side;
  23 H1121 H894 The Babylonians, H3778 and all the Chaldeans, H6489 Pekod, H7772 and Shoa, H6970 and Koa, H1121 H804 and all the Assyrians H2531 with them: all of them desirable H970 young men, H6346 captains H5461 and rulers, H7991 great lords H7121 [H8803] and renowned, H7392 [H8802] all of them riding H5483 upon horses.
  24 H935 [H8804] And they shall come H2021 against thee with chariots, H7393 wagons, H1534 and wheels, H6951 and with a congregation H5971 of people, H7760 [H8799] which shall commit H6793 against thee buckler H4043 and shield H6959 and helmet H5439 on every side: H5414 [H8804] and I will set H4941 judgment H6440 at the face of H8199 [H8804] them, and they shall judge H4941 thee according to their judgments.
  25 H5414 [H8804] And I will set H7068 my jealousy H6213 [H8804] against thee, and they shall deal H2534 in hot anger H5493 [H8686] with thee: they shall take away H639 thy nose H241 and thine ears; H319 and thy remnant H5307 [H8799] shall fall H2719 by the sword: H3947 [H8799] they shall take H1121 thy sons H1323 and thy daughters; H319 and thy remnant H398 [H8735] shall be devoured H784 by the fire.
  26 H6584 [H8689] They shall also strip H899 thee of thy clothes, H3947 [H8804] and take away H8597 thy fair H3627 jewels.
  27 H2154 Thus will I make thy lewdness H7673 [H8689] to cease H2184 from thee, and thy harlotry H776 brought from the land H4714 of Egypt: H5375 [H8799] so that thou shalt not lift up H5869 thine eyes H2142 [H8799] to them, nor remember H4714 Egypt any more.
  28 H559 [H8804] For thus saith H136 the Sovereign H3069 LORD; H5414 [H8802] Behold, I will give H3027 thee into the hand H8130 [H8804] of them whom thou hatest, H3027 into the hand H5315 of them from whom thy breath H5361 [H8804] is alienated:
  29 H6213 [H8804] And they shall deal H8135 with thee in hatred, H3947 [H8804] and shall take away H3018 all thy labour, H5800 [H8804] and shall leave H5903 thee naked H6181 and bare: H6172 and the nakedness H2183 of thy harlotries H1540 [H8738] shall be uncovered, H2154 both thy lewdness H8457 and thy harlotries.
  30 H6213 [H8800] I will do H2181 [H8800] these things to thee, because thou hast played the harlot H310 with H1471 the nations, H2930 [H8738] and because thou art polluted H1544 with their idols.
  31 H1980 [H8804] Thou hast walked H1870 in the way H269 of thy sister; H5414 [H8804] therefore will I give H3563 her cup H3027 into thine hand.
  32 H559 [H8804] Thus saith H136 the Sovereign H3069 LORD; H8354 [H8799] Thou shalt drink H269 of thy sister's H3563 cup H6013 deep H7342 and large: H6712 thou shalt be laughed at H3933 and had in derision; H3557 [H8687] it containeth H4767 much.
  33 H4390 [H8735] Thou shalt be filled H7943 with drunkenness H3015 and sorrow, H3563 with the cup H8047 of horror H8077 and desolation, H3563 with the cup H269 of thy sister H8111 Samaria.
  34 H8354 [H8804] Thou shalt even drink H4680 [H8804] it and drain it, H1633 [H8762] and thou shalt break H2789 its pieces, H5423 [H8762] and pluck off H7699 thy own breasts: H1696 [H8765] for I have spoken H5002 [H8803] it, saith H136 the Sovereign H3069 LORD.
  35 H559 [H8804] Therefore thus saith H136 the Sovereign H3069 LORD; H7911 [H8804] Because thou hast forgotten H7993 [H8686] me, and cast H310 me behind H1458 thy back, H5375 [H8798] therefore bear H2154 thou also thy lewdness H8457 and thy harlotries.
  36 H3068 The LORD H559 [H8799] said H1121 moreover to me; Son H120 of man, H8199 [H8799] wilt thou judge H170 Aholah H172 and Aholibah? H5046 [H8685] yea, declare H8441 to them their abominations;
  37 H5003 [H8765] That they have committed adultery, H1818 and blood H3027 is in their hands, H1544 and with their idols H5003 [H8765] have they committed adultery, H1121 and have also caused their sons, H3205 [H8804] whom they bore H5674 [H8689] to me, to pass for them through H402 the fire, to devour them.
  38 H6213 [H8804] Moreover this they have done H2930 [H8765] to me: they have defiled H4720 my sanctuary H3117 in the same day, H2490 [H8765] and have profaned H7676 my sabbaths.
  39 H7819 [H8800] For when they had slain H1121 their sons H1544 to their idols, H935 [H8799] then they came H3117 the same day H4720 into my sanctuary H2490 [H8763] to profane H6213 [H8804] it; and, lo, thus have they done H8432 in the midst H1004 of my house.
  40 H637 And furthermore, H7971 [H8799] that ye have sent H582 for men H935 [H8802] to come H4801 from far, H4397 to whom a messenger H7971 [H8803] was sent; H935 [H8804] and, lo, they came: H7364 [H8804] for whom thou didst wash H3583 [H8804] thyself, didst paint H5869 thine eyes, H5710 [H8804] and didst deck H5716 thyself with ornaments,
  41 H3427 [H8804] And satest H3520 upon a stately H4296 bed, H7979 and a table H6186 [H8803] prepared H6440 at the face of H7760 [H8804] it, upon which thou hast set H7004 my incense H8081 and my oil.
  42 H6963 And a voice H1995 of a multitude H7961 being at ease H582 was with her: and with the men H7230 H120 of the common sort H935 [H8716] were brought H5436 H5433 [H8675] Sabeans H4057 from the wilderness, H5414 [H8799] who put H6781 bracelets H3027 upon their hands, H8597 and beautiful H5850 crowns H7218 upon their heads.
  43 H559 [H8799] Then said H1087 I to her that was old H5004 in adulteries, H2181 [H8799] Will they now commit H8457 harlotries with her, and she with them?
  44 H935 [H8799] Yet they went in H935 [H8800] to her, as they go in H802 to a woman H2181 [H8802] that playeth the harlot: H935 [H8804] so they went in H170 to Aholah H172 and to Aholibah, H2154 the lewd H802 women.
  45 H6662 And the righteous H582 men, H8199 [H8799] they shall judge H4941 them after the manner H5003 [H8802] of adulteresses, H4941 and after the manner H8210 [H8802] of women that shed H1818 blood; H5003 [H8802] because they are adulteresses, H1818 and blood H3027 is in their hands.
  46 H559 [H8804] For thus saith H136 the Sovereign H3069 LORD; H5927 [H8687] I will bring up H6951 a congregation H5414 [H8800] upon them, and will give H2189 them to be removed H957 and plundered.
  47 H6951 And the congregation H7275 [H8804] shall stone H68 them with stones, H1254 [H8763] and dispatch H2719 them with their swords; H2026 [H8799] they shall slay H1121 their sons H1323 and their daughters, H8313 [H8799] and burn H1004 their houses H784 with fire.
  48 H2154 Thus will I cause lewdness H7673 [H8689] to cease H776 out of the land, H802 that all women H3256 [H8739] may be taught H6213 [H8799] not to do H2154 after your lewdness.
  49 H5414 [H8804] And they shall recompense H2154 your lewdness H5375 [H8799] upon you, and ye shall bear H2399 the sins H1544 of your idols: H3045 [H8804] and ye shall know H136 that I am the Sovereign H3069 LORD.
