The word of the Lord came again unto me, saying, Son of man, there were atwo women, the daughters of one mother: And bthey committed whoredoms cin Egypt; bthey committed whoredoms din their youth: there were their breasts pressed, and there ethey bruised fthe teats of their virginity. And the names of them were Aholah the elder, and Aholibah aher sister: and gthey were mine, and hthey bare sons and daughters. Thus were their names; iSamaria is ||Aholah, and Jerusalem ||Aholibah.

And Aholah played the harlot kwhen she was mine; and lshe doted on her lovers, on mthe Assyrians her neighbours, Which were clothed with blue, nocaptains and rulers, nall of them desirable young men, nhorsemen priding upon horses. Thus she committed her whoredoms with them, with all them that were the chosen men of Assyria, and with all on whom lshe doted: with all their idols she defiled herself. Neither left she her whoredoms brought cfrom Egypt: for din her youth they lay with her, and ethey bruised the breasts of her virginity, and poured their whoredom upon her. Wherefore I have delivered her into the hand of her lovers, into the hand of rthe Assyrians, lupon whom she doted. 10 These sdiscovered her nakedness: ssthey took her sons and her daughters, and slew her with the sword: and she became famous among women; for they had texecuted judgment upon her.

11 And uwhen aher sister Aholibah saw this, vshe was more corrupt in lher inordinate love than she, and in her whoredoms more than her sister in her whoredoms. 12 lShe doted upon wthe Assyrians her neighbours, ncaptains and rulers xclothed most gorgeously, nhorsemen riding upon horses, nall of them desirable young men. 13 Then I saw that she was defiled, that they took both one way, 14 And that she increased her whoredoms: for when she saw men ypourtrayed upon the wall, zthe images of athe Chaldeans pourtrayed bwith vermilion, 15 Girded with girdles upon their loins, exceeding in dyed attire upon their heads, all of them princes to look to, after the manner of the Babylonians aof Chaldea, the land of their nativity: 16 And as soon as she saw them with her eyes, hshe doted upon them, and csent messengers unto them into aChaldea. 17 And the Babylonians came to her into ccthe bed of love, and they defiled her with their whoredom, and she was polluted with them, and dher mind was alienated from them. 18 So she discovered her whoredoms, and discovered her nakedness: then dmy mind was alienated from her, like as my mind was alienated from her sister. 19 Yet eshe multiplied her whoredoms, in calling to remembrance fthe days of her youth, wherein she had played the harlot gin the land of Egypt. 20 For hshe doted upon their paramours, giwhose flesh is as the flesh of asses, and iwhose issue is like the issue of horses. 21 Thus thou lcalledst to remembrance the lewdness of thy youth, fin bruising thy teats gby the Egyptians for the paps of thy youth.
