Ezekiel 23:5-8

5-8"Oholah started whoring while she was still mine. She lusted after Assyrians as lovers: military men smartly uniformed in blue, ambassadors and governors, good-looking young men mounted on fine horses. Her lust was unrestrained.

The whoring she began while young in Egypt she continued, sleeping with men who played with her breasts and spent their lust on her.
