Cruelty and Violence
Science and History
- God dresses up Jerusalem,
cleans off the blood that she was wallowing in, and compliments her on her nice hair
and breasts. 16:6-7, 22
- Seeing that it is the time for love, God spreads his skirt over Jerusalem to cover her
- Jerusalem was a harlot who had sex with everyone that passed by. If no one was available, she "committed whoredom" with "images of men."
- "Thou ... hast opened thy feet to every one that passed by." 16:25
- "Thou hast also committed fornication with the Egyptians thy neighbours, great of flesh." (Jerusalem
had sex with Egyptians with big penises.) 16:26
- Jerusalem still wasn't satisfied after having sex with the the well-endowed Egyptians (v.26), so she had sex with Assyrians, Canaanites, Chaldeans,
and complete strangers, but still was not satisfied. So she hired men to "come in unto [her] on every side." 16:28-29
- God calls Jerusalem "an imperious whorish woman." 16:30
- God says that Jerusalem has sex with strangers, hiring them to "come in unto thee on every side."
- Because she is such a filthy harlot, God will expose her nakedness
before all of her lovers. 16:35-37
- After exposing her nakedness, God will give her "blood in fury and jealousy" and strip her naked once more.
Then he'll have her stoned "with stones and thrust through with swords." 16:38-41
- Two sisters were guilty of "committing whoredoms" by pressing their breasts and
bruising "the teats of their virginity." As a punishment, one sister's nakedness was
discovered, her children were taken from her, and she was killed by the sword. And the fate of the
surviving sister was even worse: Her nose and ears were cut off, she was made to "pluck off"
her own breasts, and then after being raped and mutilated, she is stoned to death.
- "Their breasts pressed, and there they bruised the teats of their virginity." 23:3
- "Thus she committed her whoredoms with them ... with all their idols she defiled herself." 23:7
- "They bruised the breasts of her virginity, and poured their whoredom upon her." 23:8
- "These discovered her nakedness: they took her sons and her daughters, and slew her with the sword." 23:10
- "Her sister ... was more corrupt in her inordinate love than she, and
in her whoredoms more than her sister in her whoredoms." 23:11
- "And the Babylonians came
to her into the bed of love, and they defiled her with their whoredom,
and she was polluted with them." 23:17
- "So she discovered her whoredoms, and discovered her nakedness ... she multiplied her whoredoms." 23:18-19
- Really Big Penises. One of the sister (Aholibah) had lovers
"whose flesh is as the flesh of asses, and whose issue is like the issue of horses."
- "The lewdness of thy youth, in bruising thy teats by the Egyptians for the paps of thy youth." 23:21
- "They shall also strip
thee out of thy clothes, and take away thy fair jewels." 23:26
- "Thou shalt ... pluck off thine own breasts: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD." 23:34
- "They went in unto her, as they go in unto a woman that playeth the harlot." 23:44
- "And the righteous men, they shall judge them after the manner of adulteresses, and after the manner of women that shed blood;
because they are adulteresses, and blood is in their hands." 23:45
