Ezekiel 16:20-21

Context

16:20 “‘You took your sons and your daughters whom you bore to me and you sacrificed them 1  as food for the idols to eat. As if your prostitution not enough, 16:21 you slaughtered my children and sacrificed them to the idols. 2 

1 sn The sacrifice of children was prohibited in Lev 18:21; 20:2; Deut 12:31; 18:10.

2 tn Heb “and you gave them, by passing them through to them.” Some believe this alludes to the pagan practice of making children pass through the fire.
