Bible: Eze 8:16-18

8:16 Then he brought me to the inner court of the Lord’s house. Right there 1  at the entrance to the Lord’s temple, between the porch and the altar, 2  were about twenty-five 3  men with their backs to the Lord’s temple, 4  facing east – they were worshiping the sun 5  toward the east!

8:17 He said to me, “Do you see, son of man? Is it a trivial thing that the house of Judah commits these abominations they are practicing here? For they have filled the land with violence and provoked me to anger still further. Look, they are putting the branch to their nose! 6  8:18 Therefore I will act with fury! My eye will not pity them nor will I spare 7  them. When they have shouted in my ears, I will not listen to them.”
