New King James Version
The Idolatry of Israel
11 “Harlotry, wine, and new wine (A)enslave the heart.
12 My people ask counsel from their (B)wooden idols,
And their [a]staff informs them.
For (C)the spirit of harlotry has caused them to stray,
And they have played the harlot against their God.
13 (D)They offer sacrifices on the mountaintops,
And burn incense on the hills,
Under oaks, poplars, and terebinths,
Because their shade is good.
(E)Therefore your daughters commit harlotry,
And your brides commit adultery.
14 “I will not punish your daughters when they commit harlotry,
Nor your brides when they commit adultery;
For the men themselves go apart with harlots,
And offer sacrifices with a (F)ritual harlot.
Therefore people who do not understand will be trampled.
17 “Ephraim is joined to idols,
(K)Let him alone.
18 Their drink [d]is rebellion,
They commit harlotry continually.
(L)Her [e]rulers [f]dearly love dishonor.
19 (M)The wind has wrapped her up in its wings,
And (N)they shall be ashamed because of their sacrifices.
