Ezekiel 16:24-25

Context
16:24 you built yourself a chamber 1  and put up a pavilion 2  in every public square. 16:25 At the head of every street you erected your pavilion and you disgraced 3  your beauty when you spread 4  your legs to every passerby and multiplied your promiscuity.

1 tn The Hebrew גֶּב (gev) may represent more than one word, each rare in the Old Testament. It may refer to a “mound” or to “rafters.” The LXX, Syriac, and Vulgate interpret this as a brothel.

2 tn Or “lofty place” (NRSV). See L. C. Allen, Ezekiel (WBC), 1:229, and B. Lang, Frau Weisheit, 137.

3 tn Heb “treated as if abominable,” i.e., repudiated.

4 tn The only other occurrence of the Hebrew root is found in Prov 13:3 in reference to the talkative person who habitually “opens wide” his lips.
