  • Ellen on Jeremiah 3:3
    Please explain to me what does "a whores forehead mean"?
  • Chris - in Reply on Jeremiah 3:3
    I think that this would apply to the verses preceding verse 3: about the husband divorcing his wife, she re-marrying & then returning to her first husband. This is likened to harlotry.

    In like manner, Judah had committed harlotry with God by departing from Him & serving idols & doing wickedly. They carried the image of a "whore's forehead" (a whore) who pranced about unashamedly & as if nothing was wrong. For this behaviour, God had withheld rain from them & punished them in other ways.
