My Hi-lite: Ezekiel 16:17 Thou hast also taken thy fair jewels of my gold and of my silver, which I had given thee, and madest to thyself images of men, and didst commit whoredom with them,
She (Jerusalem) took her clothes off and decorated her bed with all the nice things He gave her, and then played the harlot. Unbelievable! He never saw anything like it!
She took all of her husband's valuables and made "male" images, and worshipped them. Thou hast also taken thy fair jewels of my gold and of my silver, which I had given thee, and madest to thyself images of men, and didst commit whoredom with them,
Do you remember the "asherah" in chapter 8? (See appendix 42 in the Companion Bible.)
She committed adultery, big time!
what this talking about: Adultery = Idolatry.
To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits;
to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
