HARLOT

An abandoned woman, Proverbs 29:3; a type of idolatrous nations and cities, Isaiah 1:21 Ezekiel 16:1-63 Nahum 3:4. Among the Jews, prostitutes were often foreigners; hence their name of "strange women." They were often devoted to heathen idols, and their abominations were a part of the worship, Numbers 25:1-5 Hosea 4:14; a custom from the defilement of which the house of God was expressly defended, Deuteronomy 23:18.
