thine adulteries
Jeremiah 2:20-24
20
For long ago I broke your yoke; I tore off your fetters. You insisted: I will not serve! On every high hill and under every leafy tree you lie down [like] a prostitute.
21
I planted you, a choice vine from the very best seed. How then could you turn into a degenerate, foreign vine?
22
Even if you wash with lye and use a great amount of soap, the stain of your guilt is still in front of Me. [This is] the Lord GOD's declaration.
23
How can you protest: I am not defiled; I have not followed the Baals? Look at your behavior in the valley; acknowledge what you have done. [You are] a swift young camel twisting and turning on her way,
24
a wild donkey at home in the wilderness. She sniffs the wind in the heat of her desire. Who can control her passion? All who look for her will not become tired; they will find her in her mating season.
Jeremiah 3:1
If a man divorces his wife and she leaves him to marry another, can he ever return to her? Wouldn't such a land become totally defiled? But you! You have played the prostitute with many partners-- can you return to Me? [This is] the LORD's declaration.
Jeremiah 3:2
Look to the barren heights and see. Where have you not been immoral? You sat waiting for them beside the highways like a nomad in the desert. You have defiled the land with your prostitution and wickedness.
Jeremiah 5:7
Why should I forgive you? Your children have abandoned Me and sworn by those who are not gods. I satisfied their needs, yet they committed adultery; they gashed themselves at the prostitute's house.
Jeremiah 5:8
They are well-fed, eager stallions, each neighing after someone else's wife.
Ezekiel 16:15-22
15
"But you were confident in your beauty and acted like a prostitute because of your fame. You lavished your sexual favors on everyone who passed by. Your beauty became his.
16
You took some of your garments and made colorful high places for yourself, and you engaged in prostitution on them. These places should not have been built, and this should never have happened!
17
You also took your beautiful jewelry made from the gold and silver I had given you, and you made male images so that you could engage in prostitution with them.
18
Then you took your embroidered garments to cover them, and set My oil and incense before them.
19
You also set before them as a pleasing aroma the food I gave you-- the fine flour, oil, and honey that I fed you. That is what happened." [This is] the declaration of the Lord God.
20
"You even took your sons and daughters you bore to Me and sacrificed them to these images as food. Wasn't your prostitution enough?
21
You slaughtered My children and gave them up when you passed them through [the fire] to the images.
22
In all your abominations and acts of prostitution, you did not remember the days of your youth when you were stark naked and lying in your blood.
Ezekiel 23:2-21
2
"Son of man, there were two women, daughters of the same mother,
3
who acted like prostitutes in Egypt, behaving promiscuously in their youth. Their breasts were fondled there, and their virgin nipples caressed.
4
The older one was named Oholah, and her sister was Oholibah. They became Mine and gave birth to sons and daughters. As for their names, Oholah represents Samaria and Oholibah represents Jerusalem.
5
"Oholah acted like a prostitute even though she was Mine. She lusted after her lovers, the Assyrians: warriors
6
dressed in blue, governors and prefects, all of them desirable young men, horsemen riding on steeds.
7
She offered her sexual favors to them; all of them were the elite of Assyria. She defiled herself with all those she lusted after and with all their idols.
8
She didn't give up her promiscuity that began in Egypt, when men slept with her in her youth, caressed her virgin nipples, and poured out their lust on her.
9
Therefore, I handed her over to her lovers, the Assyrians she lusted for.
10
They exposed her nakedness, seized her sons and daughters, and killed her with the sword. Since they executed judgment against her, she became notorious among women.
11
"Now her sister Oholibah saw [this], but she was [even] more depraved in her lust than Oholah, and made her promiscuous acts worse than those of her sister.
12
She lusted after the Assyrians: governors and prefects, warriors splendidly dressed, horsemen riding on steeds, all of them desirable young men.
13
And I saw that she had defiled herself; both of them [had taken] the same path.
14
But she increased her promiscuity when she saw male figures carved on the wall, images of the Chaldeans, engraved in vermilion,
15
wearing belts on their waists and flowing turbans on their heads; all of them looked like officers, a depiction of the Babylonians in Chaldea, the land of their birth.
16
At the sight of them she lusted after them and sent messengers to them in Chaldea.
17
Then the Babylonians came to her, to the bed of love, and defiled her with their lust. But after she was defiled by them, she turned away from them in disgust.
18
When she flaunted her promiscuity and exposed her nakedness, I turned away from her in disgust just as I turned away from her sister.
19
Yet she multiplied her acts of promiscuity, remembering the days of her youth when she acted like a prostitute in the land of Egypt
20
and lusted after their lovers, whose sexual members were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of stallions.
21
So you revisited the indecency of your youth, when the Egyptians caressed your nipples to enjoy your youthful breasts.

When the LORD first spoke to Hosea, He said this to him: Go and marry a promiscuous wife and [have] children of promiscuity, for the whole land has been promiscuous by abandoning the LORD.

Adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? So whoever wants to be the world's friend becomes God's enemy.
