The prophet Jeremiah compared God’s unfaithful people to “a pros-titute” who lived with many lovers despite everything that God pro-vided for them (Jer. 3:1, NIV). In a similar way, the prophet Ezekiel called idolatrous Israel “an adulterous wife” who had departed from her true husband (Ezek. 16:32, NKJV). For this reason, idolatry in the Bible is viewed as spiritual adultery.
Even amid spiritual adultery and divine judgment, God’s love for His people never wavers.
