Ezekiel 16:25-26

Context
16:25 At the head of every street you erected your pavilion and you disgraced 1  your beauty when you spread 2  your legs to every passerby and multiplied your promiscuity. 16:26 You engaged in prostitution with the Egyptians, your sexually aroused neighbors, 3  multiplying your promiscuity and provoking me to anger.

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

2 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.

3 tn Heb “your neighbors, large of flesh.” The word “flesh” is used here of the genitals. It may simply refer to the size of their genitals in general, or, as the translation suggests, depicts them as sexually aroused.
