Ezekiel 23:14-16

23:14 But she increased her prostitution. She saw men carved on the wall, images of the Chaldeans carved in bright red, 1  23:15 wearing belts on their waists and flowing turbans on their heads, all of them looking like officers, the image of Babylonians 2  whose native land is Chaldea. 23:16 When she saw them, 3  she lusted after them and sent messengers to them in Chaldea. 4 

1 tn The only other occurrence of the Hebrew term is in Jer 22:14.

2 tn Heb “the sons of Babel.”

3 tn Heb “at the appearance of her eyes.”

4 sn The Chaldeans were prominent tribal groups of Babylonia. The imagery is reminiscent of events in the reigns of Hezekiah (2 Kgs 20:12-15) and Jehoiakim (2 Kgs 23:34-24:1).
