14 Then your (A)fame spread among the nations on account of your beauty, for it was (B)perfect because of My splendor which I bestowed on you,” declares the Lord God.

15 “But you (C)trusted in your beauty and (D)became unfaithful because of your fame, and you poured out your [a]obscene practices on every passer-by to whom it might be tempting. 16 You took some of your clothes, made for yourself [b]high places of various colors, and committed prostitution on them, which should not come about nor happen. 17 You also took your beautiful [c](E)jewels made of My gold and of My silver, which I had given you, and made for yourself male images so that you might commit prostitution with them.
