Ezekiel 16:3–14

And say, Thus saith the Lord God unto Jerusalem; Thy dbirth and thy nativity is of the land of eCanaan; fthy father was gan Amorite, and fthy mother han Hittite. And as for thy nativity, iin the day thou wast born thy navel was not cut, neither wast thou washed in water ||to supple thee; thou wast not salted at all, nor swaddled at all. jNone eye pitied thee, to do any of these unto thee, to have compassion upon thee; but thou wast cast out in the open field, to kthe lothing of thy person, iin the day that thou wast born.

And when I passed by thee, and saw thee ||polluted in thine own blood, I said unto thee when thou wast kkin thy blood, Live; yea, I said unto thee when thou wast kkin thy blood, Live. lI have caused thee to multiply as the bud of the field, and thou hast increased and waxen great, and thou art come to excellent nornaments: othy breasts are fashioned, and thine hair is grown, whereas thou wast pnaked and bare. Now when I passed by thee, and looked upon thee, behold, thy time was the time of love; and qI spread my skirt over thee, and covered thy nakedness: yea, I sware unto thee, and entered into a covenant with thee, saith the Lord God, and rthou becamest mine. Then washed I thee with water; yea, I throughly washed away thy blood from thee, and sI anointed thee with oil. 10 I clothed thee also with tbroidered work, and ttshod thee with ubadgers’ skin, and I girded thee about with vfine linen, and I covered thee with wsilk. 11 xI decked thee also with ornaments, and I put ybracelets upon thy hands, and za chain aon thy neck. 12 And I put a jewel on thy forehead, and bearrings in thine ears, and ca beautiful crown upon thine head. 13 Thus dwast thou decked with gold and silver; and thy raiment was of efine linen, and esilk, and ebroidered work; fthou didst eat fine flour, and honey, and oil: and gthou wast exceeding beautiful, and thou didst prosper into a kingdom. 14 And hthy renown went forth among the heathen ghfor thy beauty: for it was perfect through my icomeliness, which I had put upon thee, saith the Lord God.
