“On(A) a lofty and high mountain
You have set (B)your bed;
Even there you went up
To offer sacrifice.
Also behind the doors and their posts
You have set up your remembrance;
For you have uncovered yourself to those other than Me,
And have gone up to them;
You have enlarged your bed
And [a]made a covenant with them;
(C)You have loved their bed,
Where you saw their [b]nudity.
(D)You went to the king with ointment,
And increased your perfumes;
You sent your (E)messengers far off,
And even descended to Sheol.
10 You are wearied in the length of your way;
(F)Yet you did not say, ‘There is no hope.’
You have found the life of your hand;
Therefore you were not grieved.
