Ezekiel 16:37

Behold, therefore I will gather all thy lovers, with whom thou
hast taken pleasure
Or, "with whom thou hast mixed" F18; in unlawful embraces, joined in sinful alliances, or in idolatrous practices: and all [them] that thou hast loved;
the Egyptians and Assyrians, whose friendship and idolatrous customs they were fond of: with all [them] that thou hast hated;
as the Philistines, Moabites, and Ammonites: I will even gather them round about against thee;
as they were in the Chaldean army, which consisted of many nations: and will discover thy nakedness unto them, that they may see all thy
nakedness;
as a just retaliation for discovering it herself, as in (Ezekiel 16:36) ; than which nothing can be more disagreeable to the sex. The Milesian virgins were restrained from suicide by a law, which ordered that such should be drawn naked through the market place. This is to be understood of the spoiling of the city and temple.
