Ezekiel 8:13-14

Context
8:13 He said to me, “You will see them practicing even greater abominations!”

8:14 Then he brought me to the entrance of the north gate of the Lord’s house. I noticed 1  women sitting there weeping for Tammuz. 2 

1 tn Given the context this could be understood as a shock, e.g., idiomatically “Good grief! I saw….”

2 sn The worship of Tammuz included the observation of the annual death and descent into the netherworld of the god Dumuzi. The practice was observed by women in the ancient Near East over a period of centuries.
