16:1 Again the word [H1697] of the LORD [H3068] came unto me, saying [H559] ,

16:2 Son [H1121] of man [H120] , cause Jerusalem [H3389] to know [H3045] her abominations [H8441] ,

16:3 And say [H559] , Thus saith [H559] the Lord [H136] GOD [H3069] unto Jerusalem [H3389] ; Thy birth [H4351] and thy nativity [H4138] [is] of the land [H776] of Canaan [H3669] ; thy father [H1] [was] an Amorite [H567] , and thy mother [H517] an Hittite [H2850] .(birth: Heb. cutting out, or, habitation)

16:4 And [as for] thy nativity [H4138] , in the day [H3117] thou wast born [H3205] thy navel [H8270] was not cut [H3772] , neither wast thou washed [H7364] in water [H4325] to supple [H4935] [thee]; thou wast not salted [H4414] at all [H4414] , nor swaddled [H2853] at all [H2853] .(to supple: or, when I looked upon thee)

16:5 None eye [H5869] pitied [H2347] thee, to do [H6213] any [H259] of these unto thee, to have compassion [H2550] upon thee; but thou wast cast out [H7993] in the open [H6440] field [H7704] , to the lothing [H1604] of thy person [H5315] , in the day [H3117] that thou wast born [H3205] .

16:6 And when I passed [H5674] by thee, and saw [H7200] thee polluted [H947] in thine own blood [H1818] , I said [H559] unto thee [when thou wast] in thy blood [H1818] , Live [H2421] ; yea, I said [H559] unto thee [when thou wast] in thy blood [H1818] , Live [H2421] .(polluted: or, trodden under foot)

16:7 I have caused [H5414] thee to multiply [H7233] as the bud [H6780] of the field [H7704] , and thou hast increased [H7235] and waxen great [H1431] , and thou art come [H935] to excellent [H5716] ornaments [H5716] : [thy] breasts [H7699] are fashioned [H3559] , and thine hair [H8181] is grown [H6779] , whereas thou [wast] naked [H5903] and bare [H6181] .(caused: Heb. made thee a million)(excellent: Heb. ornament of ornaments)

16:8 Now when I passed [H5674] by thee, and looked [H7200] upon thee, behold, thy time [H6256] [was] the time [H6256] of love [H1730] ; and I spread [H6566] my skirt [H3671] over thee, and covered [H3680] thy nakedness [H6172] : yea, I sware [H7650] unto thee, and entered [H935] into a covenant [H1285] with thee, saith [H5002] the Lord [H136] GOD [H3069] , and thou becamest mine.

16:9 Then washed [H7364] I thee with water [H4325] ; yea, I throughly washed away [H7857] thy blood [H1818] from thee, and I anointed [H5480] thee with oil [H8081] .(blood: Heb. bloods)

16:10 I clothed [H3847] thee also with broidered work [H7553] , and shod [H5274] thee with badgers' skin [H8476] , and I girded [H2280] thee about with fine linen [H8336] , and I covered [H3680] thee with silk [H4897] .

16:11 I decked [H5710] thee also with ornaments [H5716] , and I put [H5414] bracelets [H6781] upon thy hands [H3027] , and a chain [H7242] on thy neck [H1627] .

16:12 And I put [H5414] a jewel [H5141] on thy forehead [H639] , and earrings [H5694] in thine ears [H241] , and a beautiful [H8597] crown [H5850] upon thine head [H7218] .(forehead: Heb. nose)

16:13 Thus wast thou decked [H5710] with gold [H2091] and silver [H3701] ; and thy raiment [H4403] [was of] fine linen [H8336] [H8336] , and silk [H4897] , and broidered work [H7553] ; thou didst eat [H398] fine flour [H5560] , and honey [H1706] , and oil [H8081] : and thou wast exceeding [H3966] beautiful [H3302] , and thou didst prosper [H6743] into a kingdom [H4410] .

16:14 And thy renown [H8034] went forth [H3318] among the heathen [H1471] for thy beauty [H3308] : for it [was] perfect [H3632] through my comeliness [H1926] , which I had put [H7760] upon thee, saith [H5002] the Lord [H136] GOD [H3069] .

16:15 But thou didst trust [H982] in thine own beauty [H3308] , and playedst the harlot [H2181] because of thy renown [H8034] , and pouredst out [H8210] thy fornications [H8457] on every one that passed by [H5674] ; his it was.

16:16 And of thy garments [H899] thou didst take [H3947] , and deckedst [H6213] thy high places [H1116] with divers colours [H2921] , and playedst the harlot [H2181] thereupon: [the like things] shall not come [H935] , neither shall it be [so].

16:17 Thou hast also taken [H3947] thy fair [H8597] jewels [H3627] of my gold [H2091] and of my silver [H3701] , which I had given [H5414] thee, and madest [H6213] to thyself images [H6754] of men [H2145] , and didst commit whoredom [H2181] with them,(of men: Heb. of a male)

16:18 And tookest [H3947] thy broidered [H7553] garments [H899] , and coveredst [H3680] them: and thou hast set [H5414] mine oil [H8081] and mine incense [H7004] before [H6440] them.

16:19 My meat [H3899] also which I gave [H5414] thee, fine flour [H5560] , and oil [H8081] , and honey [H1706] , [wherewith] I fed [H398] thee, thou hast even set [H5414] it before [H6440] them for a sweet [H5207] savour [H7381] : and [thus] it was, saith [H5002] the Lord [H136] GOD [H3069] .(a sweet: Heb. a savour of rest)

16:20 Moreover thou hast taken [H3947] thy sons [H1121] and thy daughters [H1323] , whom thou hast borne [H3205] unto me, and these hast thou sacrificed [H2076] unto them to be devoured [H398] . [Is this] of thy whoredoms [H8457] a small matter [H4592] ,(to be: Heb. to devour)

16:21 That thou hast slain [H7819] my children [H1121] , and delivered [H5414] them to cause them to pass through [H5674] [the fire] for them?

16:22 And in all thine abominations [H8441] and thy whoredoms [H8457] thou hast not remembered [H2142] the days [H3117] of thy youth [H5271] , when thou wast naked [H5903] and bare [H6181] , [and] wast polluted [H947] in thy blood [H1818] .

16:23 And it came to pass after [H310] all thy wickedness [H7451] , (woe [H188] , woe [H188] unto thee! saith [H5002] the Lord [H136] GOD [H3069] ;)

16:24 [That] thou hast also built [H1129] unto thee an eminent place [H1354] , and hast made [H6213] thee an high place [H7413] in every street [H7339] .(eminent: or, brothel house)

16:25 Thou hast built [H1129] thy high place [H7413] at every head [H7218] of the way [H1870] , and hast made thy beauty [H3308] to be abhorred [H8581] , and hast opened [H6589] thy feet [H7272] to every one that passed by [H5674] , and multiplied [H7235] thy whoredoms [H8457] .

16:26 Thou hast also committed fornication [H2181] with the Egyptians [H1121] [H4714] thy neighbours [H7934] , great [H1432] of flesh [H1320] ; and hast increased [H7235] thy whoredoms [H8457] , to provoke me to anger [H3707] .

16:27 Behold, therefore I have stretched out [H5186] my hand [H3027] over thee, and have diminished [H1639] thine ordinary [H2706] [food], and delivered [H5414] thee unto the will [H5315] of them that hate [H8130] thee, the daughters [H1323] of the Philistines [H6430] , which are ashamed [H3637] of thy lewd [H2154] way [H1870] .(daughters: or, cities)

16:28 Thou hast played the whore [H2181] also with the Assyrians [H1121] [H804] , because [H1115] thou wast unsatiable [H7646] ; yea, thou hast played the harlot [H2181] with them, and yet couldest not be satisfied [H7654] .

16:29 Thou hast moreover multiplied [H7235] thy fornication [H8457] in the land [H776] of Canaan [H3667] unto Chaldea [H3778] ; and yet thou wast not satisfied [H7646] herewith [H2063] .

16:30 How weak [H535] is thine heart [H3826] , saith [H5002] the Lord [H136] GOD [H3069] , seeing thou doest [H6213] all these [things], the work [H4639] of an imperious [H7986] whorish [H2181] woman [H802] ;

16:31 In that thou buildest [H1129] thine eminent place [H1354] in the head [H7218] of every way [H1870] , and makest [H6213] thine high place [H7413] in every street [H7339] ; and hast not been as an harlot [H2181] , in that thou scornest [H7046] hire [H868] ;(In that thou buildest: or, In thy daughters is thine, etc)

16:32 [But as] a wife [H802] that committeth adultery [H5003] , [which] taketh [H3947] strangers [H2114] instead of her husband [H376] !

16:33 They give [H5414] gifts [H5078] to all whores [H2181] : but thou givest [H5414] thy gifts [H5083] to all thy lovers [H157] , and hirest [H7809] them, that they may come [H935] unto thee on every side [H5439] for thy whoredom [H8457] .(hirest: Heb. bribest)

16:34 And the contrary [H2016] is in thee from [other] women [H802] in thy whoredoms [H8457] , whereas none followeth [H310] thee to commit whoredoms [H2181] : and in that thou givest [H5414] a reward [H868] , and no reward [H868] is given [H5414] unto thee, therefore thou art [H1961] contrary [H2016] .

16:35 Wherefore, O harlot [H2181] , hear [H8085] the word [H1697] of the LORD [H3068] :

16:36 Thus saith [H559] the Lord [H136] GOD [H3069] ; Because thy filthiness [H5178] was poured out [H8210] , and thy nakedness [H6172] discovered [H1540] through thy whoredoms [H8457] with thy lovers [H157] , and with all the idols [H1544] of thy abominations [H8441] , and by the blood [H1818] of thy children [H1121] , which thou didst give [H5414] unto them;

16:37 Behold, therefore I will gather [H6908] all thy lovers [H157] , with whom thou hast taken pleasure [H6149] , and all [them] that thou hast loved [H157] , with all [them] that thou hast hated [H8130] ; I will even gather [H6908] them round about [H5439] against thee, and will discover [H1540] thy nakedness [H6172] unto them, that they may see [H7200] all thy nakedness [H6172] .

16:38 And I will judge [H8199] thee, as women that break wedlock [H5003] and shed [H8210] blood [H1818] are judged [H4941] ; and I will give [H5414] thee blood [H1818] in fury [H2534] and jealousy [H7068] .(as: Heb. with judgments of)

16:39 And I will also give [H5414] thee into their hand [H3027] , and they shall throw down [H2040] thine eminent place [H1354] , and shall break down [H5422] thy high places [H7413] : they shall strip [H6584] thee also of thy clothes [H899] , and shall take [H3947] thy fair [H8597] jewels [H3627] , and leave [H3240] thee naked [H5903] and bare [H6181] .(thy fair: Heb. instruments of thine ornament)

16:40 They shall also bring up [H5927] a company [H6951] against thee, and they shall stone [H7275] thee with stones [H68] , and thrust thee through [H1333] with their swords [H2719] .

16:41 And they shall burn [H8313] thine houses [H1004] with fire [H784] , and execute [H6213] judgments [H8201] upon thee in the sight [H5869] of many [H7227] women [H802] : and I will cause thee to cease [H7673] from playing the harlot [H2181] , and thou also shalt give [H5414] no hire [H868] any more.

16:42 So will I make my fury [H2534] toward thee to rest [H5117] , and my jealousy [H7068] shall depart [H5493] from thee, and I will be quiet [H8252] , and will be no more angry [H3707] .

16:43 Because thou hast not remembered [H2142] the days [H3117] of thy youth [H5271] , but hast fretted [H7264] me in all these [things]; behold [H1887] , therefore I also will recompense [H5414] thy way [H1870] upon [thine] head [H7218] , saith [H5002] the Lord [H136] GOD [H3069] : and thou shalt not commit [H6213] this lewdness [H2154] above all thine abominations [H8441] .

16:44 Behold, every one that useth proverbs [H4911] shall use [this] proverb [H4911] against thee, saying [H559] , As [is] the mother [H517] , [so is] her daughter [H1323] .

16:45 Thou [art] thy mother's [H517] daughter [H1323] , that lotheth [H1602] her husband [H376] and her children [H1121] ; and thou [art] the sister [H269] of thy sisters [H269] , which lothed [H1602] their husbands [H582] and their children [H1121] : your mother [H517] [was] an Hittite [H2850] , and your father [H1] an Amorite [H567] .

16:46 And thine elder [H1419] sister [H269] [is] Samaria [H8111] , she and her daughters [H1323] that dwell [H3427] at thy left hand [H8040] : and thy younger [H6996] sister [H269] , that dwelleth [H3427] at thy right hand [H3225] , [is] Sodom [H5467] and her daughters [H1323] .(thy younger: Heb. lesser than thou)

16:47 Yet hast thou not walked [H1980] after their ways [H1870] , nor done [H6213] after their abominations [H8441] : but, as [if that were] a very [H6985] little [H4592] [H6962] [thing], thou wast corrupted [H7843] more than they [H2004] in all thy ways [H1870] .(as if: or, that was lothed as a small thing)

16:48 [As] I live [H2416] , saith [H5002] the Lord [H136] GOD [H3069] , Sodom [H5467] thy sister [H269] hath not done [H6213] , she nor her daughters [H1323] , as thou hast done [H6213] , thou and thy daughters [H1323] .

16:49 Behold, this was the iniquity [H5771] of thy sister [H269] Sodom [H5467] , pride [H1347] , fulness [H7653] of bread [H3899] , and abundance [H7962] of idleness [H8252] was in her and in her daughters [H1323] , neither did she strengthen [H2388] the hand [H3027] of the poor [H6041] and needy [H34] .

16:50 And they were haughty [H1361] , and committed [H6213] abomination [H8441] before [H6440] me: therefore I took them away [H5493] as I saw [H7200] [good].

16:51 Neither hath Samaria [H8111] committed [H2398] half [H2677] of thy sins [H2403] ; but thou hast multiplied [H7235] thine abominations [H8441] more than they [H2007] , and hast justified [H6663] thy sisters [H269] in all thine abominations [H8441] which thou hast done [H6213] .

16:52 Thou also, which hast judged [H6419] thy sisters [H269] , bear [H5375] thine own shame [H3639] for thy sins [H2403] that thou hast committed more abominable [H8581] than they [H2004] : they are more righteous [H6663] than thou: yea, be thou confounded [H954] also, and bear [H5375] thy shame [H3639] , in that thou hast justified [H6663] thy sisters [H269] .

16:53 When I shall bring again [H7725] their captivity [H7622] [H7622] , the captivity [H7622] [H7622] of Sodom [H5467] and her daughters [H1323] , and the captivity [H7622] [H7622] of Samaria [H8111] and her daughters [H1323] , then [will I bring again] the captivity [H7622] [H7622] of thy captives [H7622] in the midst [H8432] of them:

16:54 That thou mayest bear [H5375] thine own shame [H3639] , and mayest be confounded [H3637] in all that thou hast done [H6213] , in that thou art a comfort [H5162] unto them.

16:55 When thy sisters [H269] , Sodom [H5467] and her daughters [H1323] , shall return [H7725] to their former estate [H6927] , and Samaria [H8111] and her daughters [H1323] shall return [H7725] to their former estate [H6927] , then thou and thy daughters [H1323] shall return [H7725] to your former estate [H6927] .

16:56 For thy sister [H269] Sodom [H5467] was not mentioned [H8052] by thy mouth [H6310] in the day [H3117] of thy pride [H1347] ,(mentioned: Heb. for a report, or, hearing)(pride: Heb. prides, or, excellencies)

16:57 Before thy wickedness [H7451] was discovered [H1540] , as at the time [H6256] of [thy] reproach [H2781] of the daughters [H1323] of Syria [H758] , and all [that are] round about [H5439] her, the daughters [H1323] of the Philistines [H6430] , which despise [H7590] thee round about [H5439] .(Syria: Heb. Aram)(despise: or, spoil)

16:58 Thou hast borne [H5375] thy lewdness [H2154] and thine abominations [H8441] , saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] .(borne: Heb. borne them)

16:59 For thus saith [H559] the Lord [H136] GOD [H3069] ; I will even deal [H6213] with thee as thou hast done [H6213] , which hast despised [H959] the oath [H423] in breaking [H6565] the covenant [H1285] .

16:60 Nevertheless I will remember [H2142] my covenant [H1285] with thee in the days [H3117] of thy youth [H5271] , and I will establish [H6965] unto thee an everlasting [H5769] covenant [H1285] .

16:61 Then thou shalt remember [H2142] thy ways [H1870] , and be ashamed [H3637] , when thou shalt receive [H3947] thy sisters [H269] , thine elder [H1419] and thy younger [H6996] : and I will give [H5414] them unto thee for daughters [H1323] , but not by thy covenant [H1285] .

16:62 And I will establish [H6965] my covenant [H1285] with thee; and thou shalt know [H3045] that I [am] the LORD [H3068] :

16:63 That thou mayest remember [H2142] , and be confounded [H954] , and never open [H6610] thy mouth [H6310] any more because [H6440] of thy shame [H3639] , when I am pacified [H3722] toward thee for all that thou hast done [H6213] , saith [H5002] the Lord [H136] GOD [H3069] .
