23:1 The word [H1697] of the LORD [H3068] came again unto me, saying [H559] ,

23:2 Son [H1121] of man [H120] , there were two [H8147] women [H802] , the daughters [H1323] of one [H259] mother [H517] :

23:3 And they committed whoredoms [H2181] in Egypt [H4714] ; they committed whoredoms [H2181] in their youth [H5271] : there were their breasts [H7699] pressed [H4600] , and there they bruised [H6213] the teats [H1717] of their virginity [H1331] .

23:4 And the names [H8034] of them [were] Aholah [H170] the elder [H1419] , and Aholibah [H172] her sister [H269] : and they were mine, and they bare [H3205] sons [H1121] and daughters [H1323] . Thus [were] their names [H8034] ; Samaria [H8111] [is] Aholah [H170] , and Jerusalem [H3389] Aholibah [H172] .(Aholah: that is, His tent, or, tabernacle)(Aholibah: that is, My tabernacle in her)

23:5 And Aholah [H170] played the harlot [H2181] when she was mine [H8478] ; and she doted [H5689] on her lovers [H157] , on the Assyrians [H804] [her] neighbours [H7138] ,

23:6 [Which were] clothed [H3847] with blue [H8504] , captains [H6346] and rulers [H5461] , all of them desirable [H2531] young men [H970] , horsemen [H6571] riding [H7392] upon horses [H5483] .

23:7 Thus she committed [H5414] her whoredoms [H8457] with them, with all them [that were] the chosen [H4005] men [H1121] of Assyria [H804] , and with all on whom she doted [H5689] : with all their idols [H1544] she defiled [H2930] herself.(committed: Heb. bestowed her whoredoms upon them)(the chosen: Heb. the choice of the children of Asshur)

23:8 Neither left [H5800] she her whoredoms [H8457] [brought] from Egypt [H4714] : for in her youth [H5271] they lay [H7901] with her, and they bruised [H6213] the breasts [H1717] of her virginity [H1331] , and poured [H8210] their whoredom [H8457] upon her.

23:9 Wherefore I have delivered [H5414] her into the hand [H3027] of her lovers [H157] , into the hand [H3027] of the Assyrians [H1121] [H804] , upon whom she doted [H5689] .

23:10 These discovered [H1540] her nakedness [H6172] : they took [H3947] her sons [H1121] and her daughters [H1323] , and slew [H2026] her with the sword [H2719] : and she became famous [H8034] among women [H802] ; for they had executed [H6213] judgment [H8196] upon her.(famous: Heb. a name)

23:11 And when her sister [H269] Aholibah [H172] saw [H7200] [this], she was more corrupt [H7843] in her inordinate love [H5691] than she, and in her whoredoms [H8457] more than her sister [H269] in [her] whoredoms [H2183] .(she was: Heb. she corrupted her inordinate love more than, etc)(more than: Heb. more than the whoredoms of her sister)

23:12 She doted [H5689] upon the Assyrians [H1121] [H804] [her] neighbours [H7138] , captains [H6346] and rulers [H5461] clothed [H3847] most gorgeously [H4358] , horsemen [H6571] riding [H7392] upon horses [H5483] , all of them desirable [H2531] young men [H970] .

23:13 Then I saw [H7200] that she was defiled [H2930] , [that] they [took] both [H8147] one [H259] way [H1870] ,

23:14 And [that] she increased [H3254] her whoredoms [H8457] : for when she saw [H7200] men [H582] pourtrayed [H2707] upon the wall [H7023] , the images [H6754] of the Chaldeans [H3778] pourtrayed [H2710] with vermilion [H8350] ,

23:15 Girded [H2289] with girdles [H232] upon their loins [H4975] , exceeding [H5628] in dyed attire [H2871] upon their heads [H7218] , all of them princes [H7991] to look to [H4758] , after the manner [H1823] of the Babylonians [H1121] [H894] of Chaldea [H3778] , the land [H776] of their nativity [H4138] :

23:16 And as soon as she saw [H4758] them with her eyes [H5869] , she doted [H5689] upon them, and sent [H7971] messengers [H4397] unto them into Chaldea [H3778] .(as soon: Heb. at the sight of her eyes)

23:17 And the Babylonians [H1121] [H894] came [H935] to her into the bed [H4904] of love [H1730] , and they defiled [H2930] her with their whoredom [H8457] , and she was polluted [H2930] with them, and her mind [H5315] was alienated [H3363] from them.(Babylonians: Heb. children of Babel)(alienated: Heb. loosed, or, disjointed)

23:18 So she discovered [H1540] her whoredoms [H8457] , and discovered [H1540] her nakedness [H6172] : then my mind [H5315] was alienated [H3363] from her, like as my mind [H5315] was alienated [H5361] from her sister [H269] .

23:19 Yet she multiplied [H7235] her whoredoms [H8457] , in calling to remembrance [H2142] the days [H3117] of her youth [H5271] , wherein she had played the harlot [H2181] in the land [H776] of Egypt [H4714] .

23:20 For she doted [H5689] upon their paramours [H6370] , whose flesh [H1320] [is as] the flesh [H1320] of asses [H2543] , and whose issue [H2231] [is like] the issue [H2231] of horses [H5483] .

23:21 Thus thou calledst to remembrance [H6485] the lewdness [H2154] of thy youth [H5271] , in bruising [H6213] thy teats [H1717] by the Egyptians [H4714] for the paps [H7699] of thy youth [H5271] .

23:22 Therefore, O Aholibah [H172] , thus saith [H559] the Lord [H136] GOD [H3069] ; Behold, I will raise up [H5782] thy lovers [H157] against thee, from whom thy mind [H5315] is alienated [H5361] , and I will bring [H935] them against thee on every side [H5439] ;

23:23 The Babylonians [H1121] [H894] , and all the Chaldeans [H3778] , Pekod [H6489] , and Shoa [H7772] , and Koa [H6970] , [and] all the Assyrians [H1121] [H804] with them: all of them desirable [H2531] young men [H970] , captains [H6346] and rulers [H5461] , great lords [H7991] and renowned [H7121] , all of them riding [H7392] upon horses [H5483] .

23:24 And they shall come [H935] against thee with chariots [H2021] , wagons [H7393] , and wheels [H1534] , and with an assembly [H6951] of people [H5971] , [which] shall set [H7760] against thee buckler [H6793] and shield [H4043] and helmet [H6959] round about [H5439] : and I will set [H5414] judgment [H4941] before [H6440] them, and they shall judge [H8199] thee according to their judgments [H4941] .

23:25 And I will set [H5414] my jealousy [H7068] against thee, and they shall deal [H6213] furiously [H2534] with thee: they shall take away [H5493] thy nose [H639] and thine ears [H241] ; and thy remnant [H319] shall fall [H5307] by the sword [H2719] : they shall take [H3947] thy sons [H1121] and thy daughters [H1323] ; and thy residue [H319] shall be devoured [H398] by the fire [H784] .

23:26 They shall also strip [H6584] thee out of thy clothes [H899] , and take away [H3947] thy fair [H8597] jewels [H3627] .(fair: Heb. instruments of thy decking)

23:27 Thus will I make thy lewdness [H2154] to cease [H7673] from thee, and thy whoredom [H2184] [brought] from the land [H776] of Egypt [H4714] : so that thou shalt not lift up [H5375] thine eyes [H5869] unto them, nor remember [H2142] Egypt [H4714] any more.

23:28 For thus saith [H559] the Lord [H136] GOD [H3069] ; Behold, I will deliver [H5414] thee into the hand [H3027] [of them] whom thou hatest [H8130] , into the hand [H3027] [of them] from whom thy mind [H5315] is alienated [H5361] :

23:29 And they shall deal [H6213] with thee hatefully [H8135] , and shall take away [H3947] all thy labour [H3018] , and shall leave [H5800] thee naked [H5903] and bare [H6181] : and the nakedness [H6172] of thy whoredoms [H2183] shall be discovered [H1540] , both thy lewdness [H2154] and thy whoredoms [H8457] .

23:30 I will do [H6213] these [things] unto thee, because thou hast gone a whoring [H2181] after [H310] the heathen [H1471] , [and] because thou art polluted [H2930] with their idols [H1544] .

23:31 Thou hast walked [H1980] in the way [H1870] of thy sister [H269] ; therefore will I give [H5414] her cup [H3563] into thine hand [H3027] .

23:32 Thus saith [H559] the Lord [H136] GOD [H3069] ; Thou shalt drink [H8354] of thy sister's [H269] cup [H3563] deep [H6013] and large [H7342] : thou shalt be laughed to scorn [H6712] and had in derision [H3933] ; it containeth [H3557] much [H4767] .

23:33 Thou shalt be filled [H4390] with drunkenness [H7943] and sorrow [H3015] , with the cup [H3563] of astonishment [H8047] and desolation [H8077] , with the cup [H3563] of thy sister [H269] Samaria [H8111] .

23:34 Thou shalt even drink [H8354] it and suck [it] out [H4680] , and thou shalt break [H1633] the sherds [H2789] thereof, and pluck off [H5423] thine own breasts [H7699] : for I have spoken [H1696] [it], saith [H5002] the Lord [H136] GOD [H3069] .

23:35 Therefore thus saith [H559] the Lord [H136] GOD [H3069] ; Because thou hast forgotten [H7911] me, and cast [H7993] me behind [H310] thy back [H1458] , therefore bear [H5375] thou also thy lewdness [H2154] and thy whoredoms [H8457] .

23:36 The LORD [H3068] said [H559] moreover unto me; Son [H1121] of man [H120] , wilt thou judge [H8199] Aholah [H170] and Aholibah [H172] ? yea, declare [H5046] unto them their abominations [H8441] ;(judge: or, plead for)

23:37 That they have committed adultery [H5003] , and blood [H1818] [is] in their hands [H3027] , and with their idols [H1544] have they committed adultery [H5003] , and have also caused their sons [H1121] , whom they bare [H3205] unto me, to pass for them through [H5674] [the fire], to devour [H402] [them].

23:38 Moreover this they have done [H6213] unto me: they have defiled [H2930] my sanctuary [H4720] in the same day [H3117] , and have profaned [H2490] my sabbaths [H7676] .

23:39 For when they had slain [H7819] their children [H1121] to their idols [H1544] , then they came [H935] the same day [H3117] into my sanctuary [H4720] to profane [H2490] it; and, lo, thus have they done [H6213] in the midst [H8432] of mine house [H1004] .

23:40 And furthermore [H637] , that ye have sent [H7971] for men [H582] to come [H935] from far [H4801] , unto whom a messenger [H4397] [was] sent [H7971] ; and, lo, they came [H935] : for whom thou didst wash [H7364] thyself, paintedst [H3583] thy eyes [H5869] , and deckedst [H5710] thyself with ornaments [H5716] ,(to come: Heb. coming)

23:41 And satest [H3427] upon a stately [H3520] bed [H4296] , and a table [H7979] prepared [H6186] before [H6440] it, whereupon thou hast set [H7760] mine incense [H7004] and mine oil [H8081] .(stately: Heb. honourable)

23:42 And a voice [H6963] of a multitude [H1995] being at ease [H7961] [was] with her: and with the men [H582] of the common sort [H7230] [H120] [were] brought [H935] Sabeans [H5436] [H5433] from the wilderness [H4057] , which put [H5414] bracelets [H6781] upon their hands [H3027] , and beautiful [H8597] crowns [H5850] upon their heads [H7218] .(of the: Heb. of the multitude of men)(Sabeans: or, drunkards)

23:43 Then said [H559] I unto [her that was] old [H1087] in adulteries [H5004] , Will they now commit [H2181] whoredoms [H8457] with her, and she [with them]?(whoredoms: Heb. her whoredoms)

23:44 Yet they went in [H935] unto her, as they go in [H935] unto a woman [H802] that playeth the harlot [H2181] : so went they in [H935] unto Aholah [H170] and unto Aholibah [H172] , the lewd [H2154] women [H802] .

23:45 And the righteous [H6662] men [H582] , they shall judge [H8199] them after the manner [H4941] of adulteresses [H5003] , and after the manner [H4941] of women that shed [H8210] blood [H1818] ; because they [are] adulteresses [H5003] , and blood [H1818] [is] in their hands [H3027] .

23:46 For thus saith [H559] the Lord [H136] GOD [H3069] ; I will bring up [H5927] a company [H6951] upon them, and will give [H5414] them to be removed [H2189] and spoiled [H957] .(to be: Heb. for a removing and spoil)

23:47 And the company [H6951] shall stone [H7275] them with stones [H68] , and dispatch [H1254] them with their swords [H2719] ; they shall slay [H2026] their sons [H1121] and their daughters [H1323] , and burn up [H8313] their houses [H1004] with fire [H784] .(dispatch: or, single them out)

23:48 Thus will I cause lewdness [H2154] to cease [H7673] out of the land [H776] , that all women [H802] may be taught [H3256] not to do [H6213] after your lewdness [H2154] .

23:49 And they shall recompense [H5414] your lewdness [H2154] upon you, and ye shall bear [H5375] the sins [H2399] of your idols [H1544] : and ye shall know [H3045] that I [am] the Lord [H136] GOD [H3069] .
