Lamentations 1:17 (a) The city where GOD had placed His name had become a vile, filthy community. That which emanated from this city was offensive to GOD, and shameful in every aspect. Her manners and her ways were repulsive to the holy GOD who had chosen her. (See also Ezekiel 16:30; Ezekiel 23:44; Ezekiel 36:17).

Zechariah 5:7 (b) This woman represents Israel from the commercial standpoint. The ephah, which was a measure, represents her business enterprises. It was the burden of the nation, as it still is. Their object in life was to make money, gain power, and rise to places of distinction.

Matthew 13:33 (b) Here is a type of apostate Christendom, and false religions. They use much of the Word of GOD (the meal), but they mingle with it their false and evil explanations which poison the souls of those who partake of it. Every false religion, in so-called Christendom, uses much of the Bible in their writings and utterances. They poison these messages by interjecting their own explanation and false deductions which produce wrong conclusions. The result is that CHRIST JESUS is not honored and the Word of GOD is dishonored.

Revelation 12:1 (b) This woman represents the nation of Israel with her twelve patriarchs (or tribes), and JESUS was the child born from Israel.
