Devotional Thought : Ezekiel 23:11

Her sister Oholibah (that is, Jerusalem, see verse 4) saw this, yet in her lust and prostitution she was more depraved than her sister. Ezekiel 23:11 The way Ezekiel describes the behaviour of those in Jerusalem is surprising. These people had already seen the...
