1 Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying,
2 “Son of man, amake known to Jerusalem her abominations
3 and say, ‘Thus says the Lord 1God to Jerusalem, “Your origin and your birth are from the land of the Canaanite, your father was an Amorite and your mother a Hittite.
4 “As for your birth, aon the day you were born your navel cord was not cut, nor were you washed with water for cleansing; you were not rubbed with salt or even wrapped in cloths.
8 “Then I passed by you and saw you, and behold, 1you were at the time for love; so I aspread My skirt over you and covered your nakedness. I also bswore to you and centered into a covenant with you so that you dbecame Mine,” declares the Lord God.
9 “Then I bathed you with water, washed off your blood from you and aanointed you with oil.
10 “I also clothed you with aembroidered cloth and put sandals of porpoise skin on your feet; and I wrapped you with fine linen and covered you with silk.
13 “Thus you were adorned with agold and silver, and your dress was of fine linen, silk and embroidered cloth. You ate fine flour, honey and oil; so you were exceedingly beautiful and advanced to broyalty.
16 “You took some of your clothes, made for yourself high places of various colors and played the harlot on them, 1which should never come about nor happen.
22 “Besides all your abominations and harlotries you did not remember the days of ayour youth, when you were naked and bare and squirming in your blood.
25 “You built yourself a high place at the top of aevery street and made your beauty abominable, and you spread your legs to every passer-by to multiply your harlotry.
27 “Behold now, I have stretched out My hand against you and diminished your rations. And I delivered you up to the desire of those who hate you, the adaughters of the Philistines, who are ashamed of your lewd conduct.
28 “Moreover, you played the harlot with the aAssyrians because you were not satisfied; you played the harlot with them and still were not satisfied.
31 “When you built your shrine at the beginning of every street and made your high place in every square, in adisdaining money, you were not like a harlot.
34 “Thus you are different from those women in your harlotries, in that no one plays the harlot 1as you do, because you give money and no money is given you; thus you are different.”
36 Thus says the Lord God, “Because your lewdness was poured out and your nakedness uncovered through your harlotries with your lovers and with all your detestable aidols, and because of the blood of your sons which you gave to 1idols,
37 therefore, behold, I will agather all your lovers with whom you took pleasure, even all those whom you loved and all those whom you bhated. So I will gather them against you from every direction and cexpose your nakedness to them that they may see all your nakedness.
39 “I will also give you into 1the hands of your lovers, and they will tear down your shrines, demolish your high places, astrip you of your clothing, take away your 2jewels, and will leave you naked and bare.
43 “Because you have anot remembered the days of your youth but 1have benraged Me by all these things, behold, I in turn will cbring your conduct down on your own head,” declares the Lord God, “so that you will not commit this lewdness on top of all your other abominations.
45 “You are the daughter of your mother, who loathed her husband and children. You are also the asister of your sisters, who bloathed their husbands and children. Your mother was a Hittite and your father an Amorite.
48 “As I live,” declares the Lord God, “Sodom, your sister and her daughters have anot done as you and your daughters have done.
51 “Furthermore, Samaria did not commit half of your sins, for you have multiplied your abominations more than they. Thus you have made your sisters appear arighteous by all your abominations which you have committed.
52 “Also bear your disgrace in that you have 1made judgment favorable for your sisters. Because of your sins in which you acted amore abominably than they, they are more in the right than you. Yes, be also ashamed and bear your disgrace, in that you made your sisters appear righteous.
55 “Your sisters, Sodom with her daughters and Samaria with her daughters, 1will return to their former state, and you with your daughters will also return to your former state.
57 before your awickedness was uncovered, 1so now you have become the breproach of the daughters of 2Edom and of all who are around her, of the daughters of the Philistines—those surrounding you who despise you.
58 “You have aborne the penalty of your lewdness and abominations,” the Lord declares.
59 For thus says the Lord God, “I will also do with you as you have done, you who have adespised the oath by breaking the covenant.
60 “Nevertheless, I will remember My covenant with you in the days of your youth, and I will establish an aeverlasting covenant with you.
61 “Then you will aremember your ways and be ashamed when you receive your sisters, both your older and your younger; and I will give them to you as daughters, but not because of your covenant.
