Ezekiel 23:19-21

Yet she increased her whorings, remembering the days of her youth, when she played the whore in the land of Egypt and lusted after her paramours there, whose members were like those of donkeys, and whose emission was like that of stallions. Thus you longed for the lewdness of your youth, when the Egyptians fondled your bosom and caressed your young breasts.

    Holy shit, the rest of it:

    “For thus says the Lord God: Bring up an assembly against them, and make them an object of terror and of plunder.
    The assembly shall stone them and with their swords they shall cut them
    down; they shall kill their sons and their daughters, and burn up their
    houses.
    Thus will I put an end to lewdness in the land, so that all women may take warning and not commit lewdness as you have done.
    They shall repay you for your lewdness, and you shall bear the penalty
    for your sinful idolatry; and you shall know that I am the Lord God.”

    Mmm, Biblical values.

    What a thing to be faced with first thing on a Sunday morning I don’t even.

    The best I can do with this one:

    Well now way back in the Bible
    Temptations always come along
    There’s always somebody tempting
    Somebody into doing something they know is wrong
    Well they tempt you, man, with silver
    And they tempt you, sir, with gold
    And they tempt you with the pleasures
    That the flesh does surely hold
    They say Eve tempted Adam with an apple
    But man I ain’t going for that
    I know it was her pink Cadillac
    Crushed velvet seats
    Riding in the back
    Oozing down the street
    Waving to the girls
    Feeling out of sight
    Spending all my money
    On a Saturday night
    Honey I just wonder what it feels like in the back
    Of your pink Cadillac

    -Bruce Springsteen

     Not ‘cruising down the streets’?

    I feel sorry for the whore. The guys have cocks the size of donkeys’ dicks? Man, that sounds painful. Poor woman.

    Nope, it’s definitely “oozing”.

    I decided this morning that whenever Fred posted a text I would  find it in my Bible (revised standard version) and read it and the verses around it. I wasn’t familiar with Ezekiel so I thought “This will be interesting”.

    Oh my.

    Dear Mr. Clark,

    I bet you just posted that passage to see if we were really paying attention to these Sunday morning posts. Didn’t you?

    Imagine an enraged Samuel L. Jackson in Pulp Fiction bellowing this every time he gunned some sucker down. The truth is that he’s the donkey, but he’s trying real hard to be the stallion.

    I am absolutely committed to a literalist understanding of Ezekiel.  It makes my picture of the ancient Near East far more interesting.

    Sounds like Chris Hadrick. He’s lusting after the so-called “Gilded Age” too.

  • P J Evans

    I don’t think that’s the gilded age he has in mind. But then I don’t think he really has a clue what the Gilded Age was like for most people.

    The ex-boyfriend of a good friend of mine once manipulated the round-robin reading in their Bible study so that she ended up reading that.

    To this day, I don’t know why he’s still alive. Woman is a saint.

    I’ve considered having a bumper sticker made that says: “Ezekiel 23:20 — God said it, I believe it, that settles it”.

    Either that, or holding up an “Ezekiel 23:20″ poster at a football game.

  • Ursula L

    Fred’s been saying for years that he wanted to hold that poster at a  football game.  I don’t know if he’s had the chance yet.
