The Bible in Its Traditions

Baruch 6:10,23


10  Moreover, they even give from it to prostitutes, and use it to adorn kept women, and when they receive it back from the kept women, they use it to adorn their gods.

Bar6:10  Sometimes also the priests convey from their gods gold and silver, and bestow it upon themselves.

23  Furthermore, the gold which they have is shiny, but unless someone wipes off the rust, they will not shine. And even when they were molten, they did not feel it.

Bar6:23  By this ye may know that they are no gods: therefore fear them not.
