Num. 18:1 And the Lord said unto Aaron, Thou and thy sons and thy father’s house with thee
        shall bear the iniquity of the sanctuary:
        and thou and thy sons with thee shall
bear the iniquity of your priesthood.

Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Behold, mine anger and my fury shall be poured out upon this place, upon man, and upon beast, and upon the trees of the field, and upon the fruit of the ground; and it shall burn, and shall not be quenched. Jeremiah 7:20

Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel;
Put your burnt offerings unto your sacrifices, and eat flesh. Jeremiah 7:21
21. Put ... burnt offerings unto ... sacrifices ... eat flesh--Add the former (which the law required to be wholly burnt) to the latter (which were burnt only in part), and "eat flesh" even off the holocausts or burnt offerings. As far as I am concerned, saith Jehovah, you may do with one and the other alike. I will have neither (Isa 1:11 Ho 8:13 Am 5:21,22). JFB

For I spake NOT unto your fathers, nor commanded them I hate, I despise your feast days, and I will not smell in your solemn assemblies. Amos 5:21
in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, concerning burnt offerings or sacrifices: Jeremiah 7:22 Though ye offer me burnt offerings and your meat offerings, I will not accept them: neither will I regard the peace offerings of your fat beasts. Amos 5:22
     Take thou away from me the noise of thy songs;
     for I will not hear the melody of thy viols. Amos 5:23
BUT this thing commanded I them, saying,
       Obey my voice, and I will be your God,
                 and ye shall be my people:
       and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you,  that it may be well unto you. Jeremiah 7:23 
BUT let judgment run down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream Amos 5:24

Amos 5:25 Have ye offered unto me sacrifices and offerings in the wilderness forty years, O house of Israel?

BUT they HEARKENED NOT, nor inclined their ear,
        but walked in the counsels
        and in the
imagination of their evil heart,
        and went backward, and not forward. Jeremiah 7:24

Since the day that your fathers came forth out of the land of Egypt unto this day,
        I have even sent unto you all MY servants the PROPHETS, daily rising up early and sending them: Jeremiah 7:25

Yet they HEARKENED NOT unto me, nor inclined their ear, but hardened their neck: they did worse than their fathers. Jeremiah 7:26

Therefore thou shalt speak all these words unto them;
       but they will not hearken to thee:
       thou shalt also call unto them; 
       but they will not answer thee. Jeremiah 7:27

Amos 5:26 BUT ye have borne the tabernacle of your and Moloch and Chiun [#666] your images, the star of your god, which ye made to yourselves.

They burned infants to the beat of instruments in 2 Chron 28 just before the PURGE and EXORCISM and in chapter 30 just AFTER Hezekiah's ceremony SOLELY to get the priests to return to Jerusalem to help defend it.

Amos 5:27 Therefore will I cause you to go into captivity beyond Damascus, saith the LORD, whose name is The God of hosts.

This was the sentence conditionally imposed because of musical idolatry at Mount Sinai.  Canaan as the promised land became the Killing Fields as God let the kings lead them into captivity and death.

Amos 5:26 But ye have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch and Chiun your images,
        the STAR of your god, which ye made to yourselves.

Acts 7:41 And they made a calf in those days,
        and offered sacrifice unto the idol,
        and rejoiced in the works of their own hands

The practice in the wilderness, tyre and Jerusalem

Acts 7:42 Then God turned,
        and gave them up to worship the HOST of heaven; 
        as it is written in the book of the prophets,
        O ye house of Israel,  have ye offered to me slain beasts and sacrifices
        by the space of forty years in the wilderness?

Amos 5:27 Therefore will I cause you to go into
        captivity beyond Damascus,
        saith the LORD, whose name is The God of hosts.
Acts 7:43 Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, 
        and the star of your god Remphan, 
        figures which ye made to worship them: 
        and I will carry you away beyond Babylon.


Gen. 49:1 And Jacob called unto his sons, and said,
        Gather yourselves together,
        that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days.
Gen. 49:2 Gather yourselves together,
        and hear, ye sons of Jacob;
        and hearken unto Israel your father.
Gen. 49:3 Reuben, thou art my firstborn, my might, and the beginning of my strength,
        the excellency of dignity, and the excellency of power:
Gen. 49:4 Unstable as water, thou shalt not excel;
        because thou wentest up to thy father’s bed;
        then defiledst thou it: he went up to my couch.
Defiled is g2490 translated "play the flute, steal people's inheritance, pollute or prostitute.
Genesis 49.5 Symeon et Levi fratres vasa iniquitatis bellantia
Gen. 49:5 Simeon and Levi are brethren;
        instruments (h3617 weapon, psaltery)
        of cruelty are in their habitations.
                 (stabbing, dig through furnace, for burning
                 Bellor fight,  carry on war,

2 Chronicles 34:13Also they were over the bearers of burdens, and were overseers of all that wrought the work in any manner of service: and of the Levites there were scribes, and officers, and porters.

Psa 71 22  I will also praise thee
    with the psaltery,
         even thy truth, O my God: unto thee
        will I sing with the harp,
O thou Holy One of Israel.
23  My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing unto thee; and my soul, which thou hast redeemed.
24  My tongue also shall talk of thy righteousness all the day long: for they are confounded, for they are brought unto shame, that seek my hurt.

Angry I was, but feare my wrath exempted.
But she conceiv'd of me, or I amsure

Thou that frequents Canopus pleasant fields,
Memphis, and Pharos that sweete date trees yeelds,
And where swift Nile in his large channell slipping,
By seaven huge mouthes into the sea is skipping,
By fear'd Anubis visage I thee pray,
So in thy Temples shall Osiris stay,
And the dull snake about thy offrings creepe,
And in thy pompe hornd Apis with thee keepe,
Turne thy lookes hether, and in one spare twaine,
Thou givest my mistris life, she mine againe.

Where the French rout engirt themselves with Bayes.
On labouring women thou doest pitty take,
Whose bodies with their heavy burthens ake.

Too Long In The Sun, Richard Rives sees in Exodus 32, a Biblical precedent which provoked God nearly to the point of destroying the nation of Israel for their sin of blending (baptizing) pagan worship with His own:

"...the golden calf was built and the celebration declared a 'feast to the Lord.'...The people had declared a celebration to honor God that
........... he did not recognize as being in his honor."

[As a result, God turned them over to worship the starry host!]

"Hathor and Aphis, the cow and bull gods of Egypt, were representatives of sun worship. Their worship was just one stage in the long Egyptian history of solar veneration. The golden calf at Mount Sinai is more than sufficient evidence to prove that the feast proclaimed was related to sun worship.

The event at Mount Sinai was just one episode in the Satanic apostasy which began at the tower of Babel. The celebration of December 25th, originally proclaimed in honor of the birth of the sun god Mithra, can only be one of the final events in the long continuing saga of Satanic sun worship." Richard Rives, Too Long in the Sun, Partakers Pub., 1996, pp. 129-30.

The goddess Inanna, associated with the winged lion, or while subjugating the lion. having assumed on themself the wings "Qedesha, also spelled kedesha or kedeshah , Akkadian qadishtu one of a class of sacred prostitutes found throughout the ancient Middle East, especially in the worship of the fertility goddess Astarte (Ashtoreth, Astarte (easter), Inanna). Prostitutes, who often played an important part in official temple worship, could be either male or female.


In Egypt, a goddess named Qedeshu, Lady of Kadesh (Syria), was worshiped in the 19th and 20th dynasties (1292 c. 1075 BC). Her representation is found on private stelae of middle-class workers. She is shown nude, posed frontally on a lioness (or a leopard), holding arrows in her hands. Although Israelite prophets and reformers repeatedly denounced sacred prostitution, the early Israelites seem to have adopted the local Canaanite rites, which they apparently practiced publicly until the reform of King Josiah about 621 BC.
