The free prostitute (Ezek 16:30-16:31)

“Says Yahweh God.

‘How sick is your heart?

You did all these things.

You did the deeds

Of a brazen whore.

You built a platform

At the head

Of every street.

You made your lofty place

In every square.

Yet you were not

Like a whore,

Because you scorned payment.’”

Yahweh God spoke out again. How sick was the heart of Jerusalem? She had acted like a brazen whore, a prostitute. As mentioned earlier, she built a platform at every street corner and a lofty place in the town square. The only difference between her and a common whore, was that she did not accept any payment for her prostitution activities.
