14:22 Judah did evil in the sight of 1 the Lord. They made him more jealous by their sins than their ancestors had done. 2 14:23 They even built for themselves high places, sacred pillars, and Asherah poles on every high hill and under every green tree. 14:24 There were also male cultic prostitutes 3 in the land. They committed the same horrible sins as the nations 4 that the Lord had driven out from before the Israelites.
