Prostitution with the Assyrians (Ezek 16:28-16:28)

“You played the whore  

With the Assyrians.

Because you were insatiable.

You played the prostitute

With them.

Still you were not satisfied.”

Yahweh said that they prostituted themselves with the Assyrians, their neighbors to the north. In fact, Yahweh said that they were insatiable. They could not get enough of the Assyrians, who were the natural enemies of the Egyptians. They were never satisfied. They always wanted more Assyrians gods in Jerusalem.
