add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

2 Son of man, cause Jerusalem to know her abominations,

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

4 And as for thy nativity, in the day thou wast born thy navel was not cut, neither wast thou washed in water to supple thee; thou wast not salted at all, nor swaddled at all.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

5 None eye pitied thee, to do any of these unto thee, to have compassion upon thee; but thou wast cast out in the open field, to the lothing of thy person, in the day that thou wast born.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

6 And when I passed by thee, and saw thee polluted in thine own blood, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live; yea, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

7 I have caused thee to multiply as the bud of the field, and thou hast increased and waxen great, and thou art come to excellent ornaments: thy breasts are fashioned, and thine hair is grown, whereas thou wast naked and bare.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

8 Now when I passed by thee, and looked upon thee, behold, thy time was the time of love; and I spread my skirt over thee, and covered thy nakedness: yea, I sware unto thee, and entered into a covenant with thee, saith the Lord GOD, and thou becamest mine.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

10 I clothed thee also with broidered work, and shod thee with badgers' skin, and I girded thee about with fine linen, and I covered thee with silk.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

12 And I put a jewel on thy forehead, and earrings in thine ears, and a beautiful crown upon thine head.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

13 Thus wast thou decked with gold and silver; and thy raiment was of fine linen, and silk, and broidered work; thou didst eat fine flour, and honey, and oil: and thou wast exceeding beautiful, and thou didst prosper into a kingdom.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

14 And thy renown went forth among the heathen for thy beauty: for it was perfect through my comeliness, which I had put upon thee, saith the Lord GOD.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

15 But thou didst trust in thine own beauty, and playedst the harlot because of thy renown, and pouredst out thy fornications on every one that passed by; his it was.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

16 And of thy garments thou didst take, and deckedst thy high places with divers colours, and playedst the harlot thereupon: the like things shall not come, neither shall it be so.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

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,

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

18 And tookest thy broidered garments, and coveredst them: and thou hast set mine oil and mine incense before them.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

19 My meat also which I gave thee, fine flour, and oil, and honey, wherewith I fed thee, thou hast even set it before them for a sweet savour: and thus it was, saith the Lord GOD.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

20 Moreover thou hast taken thy sons and thy daughters, whom thou hast borne unto me, and these hast thou sacrificed unto them to be devoured. Is this of thy whoredoms a small matter,

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

21 That thou hast slain my children, and delivered them to cause them to pass through the fire for them?

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

22 And in all thine abominations and thy whoredoms thou hast not remembered the days of thy youth, when thou wast naked and bare, and wast polluted in thy blood.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

23 And it came to pass after all thy wickedness, (woe, woe unto thee! saith the Lord GOD;)

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

24 That thou hast also built unto thee an eminent place, and hast made thee an high place in every street.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

25 Thou hast built thy high place at every head of the way, and hast made thy beauty to be abhorred, and hast opened thy feet to every one that passed by, and multiplied thy whoredoms.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

26 Thou hast also committed fornication with the Egyptians thy neighbours, great of flesh; and hast increased thy whoredoms, to provoke me to anger.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

27 Behold, therefore I have stretched out my hand over thee, and have diminished thine ordinary food, and delivered thee unto the will of them that hate thee, the daughters of the Philistines, which are ashamed of thy lewd way.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

28 Thou hast played the whore also with the Assyrians, because thou wast unsatiable; yea, thou hast played the harlot with them, and yet couldest not be satisfied.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

29 Thou hast moreover multiplied thy fornication in the land of Canaan unto Chaldea; and yet thou wast not satisfied herewith.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

30 How weak is thine heart, saith the Lord GOD, seeing thou doest all these things, the work of an imperious whorish woman;

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

31 In that thou buildest thine eminent place in the head of every way, and makest thine high place in every street; and hast not been as an harlot, in that thou scornest hire;

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

32 But as a wife that committeth adultery, which taketh strangers instead of her husband!

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

33 They give gifts to all whores: but thou givest thy gifts to all thy lovers, and hirest them, that they may come unto thee on every side for thy whoredom.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

34 And the contrary is in thee from other women in thy whoredoms, whereas none followeth thee to commit whoredoms: and in that thou givest a reward, and no reward is given unto thee, therefore thou art contrary.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

35 Wherefore, O harlot, hear the word of the LORD:

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

36 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thy filthiness was poured out, and thy nakedness discovered through thy whoredoms with thy lovers, and with all the idols of thy abominations, and by the blood of thy children, which thou didst give unto them;

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

37 Behold, therefore I will gather all thy lovers, with whom thou hast taken pleasure, and all them that thou hast loved, with all them that thou hast hated; I will even gather them round about against thee, and will discover thy nakedness unto them, that they may see all thy nakedness.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

38 And I will judge thee, as women that break wedlock and shed blood are judged; and I will give thee blood in fury and jealousy.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

39 And I will also give thee into their hand, and they shall throw down thine eminent place, and shall break down thy high places: they shall strip thee also of thy clothes, and shall take thy fair jewels, and leave thee naked and bare.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

40 They shall also bring up a company against thee, and they shall stone thee with stones, and thrust thee through with their swords.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

41 And they shall burn thine houses with fire, and execute judgments upon thee in the sight of many women: and I will cause thee to cease from playing the harlot, and thou also shalt give no hire any more.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

42 So will I make my fury toward thee to rest, and my jealousy shall depart from thee, and I will be quiet, and will be no more angry.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

43 Because thou hast not remembered the days of thy youth, but hast fretted me in all these things; behold, therefore I also will recompense thy way upon thine head, saith the Lord GOD: and thou shalt not commit this lewdness above all thine abominations.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

44 Behold, every one that useth proverbs shall use this proverb against thee, saying, As is the mother, so is her daughter.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

45 Thou art thy mother's daughter, that lotheth her husband and her children; and thou art the sister of thy sisters, which lothed their husbands and their children: your mother was an Hittite, and your father an Amorite.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

46 And thine elder sister is Samaria, she and her daughters that dwell at thy left hand: and thy younger sister, that dwelleth at thy right hand, is Sodom and her daughters.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

47 Yet hast thou not walked after their ways, nor done after their abominations: but, as if that were a very little thing, thou wast corrupted more than they in all thy ways.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

48 As I live, saith the Lord GOD, Sodom thy sister hath not done, she nor her daughters, as thou hast done, thou and thy daughters.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

49 Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

50 And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

51 Neither hath Samaria committed half of thy sins; but thou hast multiplied thine abominations more than they, and hast justified thy sisters in all thine abominations which thou hast done.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

52 Thou also, which hast judged thy sisters, bear thine own shame for thy sins that thou hast committed more abominable than they: they are more righteous than thou: yea, be thou confounded also, and bear thy shame, in that thou hast justified thy sisters.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

53 When I shall bring again their captivity, the captivity of Sodom and her daughters, and the captivity of Samaria and her daughters, then will I bring again the captivity of thy captives in the midst of them:

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

54 That thou mayest bear thine own shame, and mayest be confounded in all that thou hast done, in that thou art a comfort unto them.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

55 When thy sisters, Sodom and her daughters, shall return to their former estate, and Samaria and her daughters shall return to their former estate, then thou and thy daughters shall return to your former estate.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

56 For thy sister Sodom was not mentioned by thy mouth in the day of thy pride,

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

57 Before thy wickedness was discovered, as at the time of thy reproach of the daughters of Syria, and all that are round about her, the daughters of the Philistines, which despise thee round about.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

58 Thou hast borne thy lewdness and thine abominations, saith the LORD.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

59 For thus saith the Lord GOD; I will even deal with thee as thou hast done, which hast despised the oath in breaking the covenant.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

60 Nevertheless I will remember my covenant with thee in the days of thy youth, and I will establish unto thee an everlasting covenant.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

61 Then thou shalt remember thy ways, and be ashamed, when thou shalt receive thy sisters, thine elder and thy younger: and I will give them unto thee for daughters, but not by thy covenant.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

62 And I will establish my covenant with thee; and thou shalt know that I am the LORD:

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

63 That thou mayest remember, and be confounded, and never open thy mouth any more because of thy shame, when I am pacified toward thee for all that thou hast done, saith the Lord GOD.
