PREFACE
 
Ezekiel Chapter 8
 
1. And it came to pass in the sixth year, in the sixth
month,
in the fifth
day
of the month, as I sat inmine house, and the elders of Judah sat before me, that the hand of the LORD GOD fell thereupon me.
 
2. Then I beheld, and lo, a likeness as the appearance of fire; from the appearance of his loinseven downward, fire; and from his loins even upward, as the appearance of brightness, as thecolor of amber.
 
3. And be put forth the form of an hand, and took me by a lock of mine head; and the spirit liftedme up between the earth and the heaven, and brought me in the visions of God to Jerusalem, tothe door of the inner gate that looketh toward the north; where was the seat of the image of  jealousy, which provoketh to jealousy.
 
4. And behold, the glory of the God of Israel
was
there, according to the vision that I saw in theplain.
 
5. Then said he unto me, Son of man, lift up thine eyes now the way toward the north. So I liftedup mine eyes the way toward the north; and behold, northward, at the gate of the altar, thisimage of jealousy in the entry.
 
6. He said furthermore unto me; Son of man, seest thou what they do? --
even
the greatabominations that the house of Israel committeth here, that I should go far off from mysanctuary? but turn thee yet again,
and
thou shalt see greater abominations.
 
 
7. And he brought me to the door of the court; and when I looked, behold, a hole in the wall.
 
8. Then said he unto me, Son of man, dig now in the wall: and when I had digged in the wall,behold, a door.
 
9. And he said unto me, Go in, and behold the wicked abominations that they do here.
 
10 So I went in and saw; and. behold, every, form of creeping things, and abominable beasts,and all the idols of the of Israel, portrayed upon the wall round about.
 
11. And there stood before them seventy men of the ancients of the house of Israel, and in themidst of them stood Jaazaniah the son of Shaphan, with every man his censer in his hand; and athick cloud of incense went up.
 
12. Then said he unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen what the ancients of the house of Israeldo in the dark, every man in the chambers of his imagery? for they say, The Lord seeth us not;the Lord hath forsaken the earth.
 
13. He said also unto me, Turn thee yet again,
and
thou shalt see greater abominations that theydo.
 
14. Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the LORD'S house which was toward thenorth; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz.
 
15. Then said he unto me, Hast thou seen
this,
O Son of man? turn thee yet again,
and
thoushalt see greater abominations than these.
 
16. And he brought me into the inner court of the LORD'S house, and, behold, at the door of thetemple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar,
were
about five and twenty men, with their backs towards the temple of the LORD, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped thesun toward the east.
 
17. Then he said unto me, Hast thou seen
this,
O Son of man? Is it a light thing to the house of Judah that they commit the abominations which they commit here? for they have filled the landwith violence, and have returned to provoke me to anger; and, lo, they put the branch to their nose.
 
18. Therefore will I also deal in fury: mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity; and thoughthey cry in mine ears with a loud voice,
yet
will I not hear them.
 
CHAPTER I
 
 The Struggle before the Surrender of Womanly Self-Respect in the Confessional
 
THERE are two women who ought to be constant objects of the compassion of the disciples of Christ, and for whom daily prayers ought to be offered at the mercy-seat -- the Brahmin woman,who, deceived by her priests, burns herself on the corpse of her husband to appease the wrath of her wooden gods; and the Roman Catholic woman, who, not less deceived by her priests, suffersa torture far more cruel and ignominious in the confessional-box, to appease the wrath of her wafer-god.
