The Prophet Jeremiah

 
“Seest thou not what they do in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem?  The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink-offering unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger.  Do they provoke me to anger? saith the Lord: do they not provoke themselves to the confusion of their own faces?” {Jeremiah 7:17-19}.

 
But we will certainly do whatsoever things goeth forth out of our own mouth, to burn incense unto the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink-offering unto her, as we have done, we, and our fathers, our kings, and our princes, in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem: for then had we plenty of victuals, and were well, and saw no evil.  But since we left off to burn incense to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink-offerings unto her, we have wanted all things, and have been consumed by the sword and by famine.  And when we burned incense unto the queen of heaven, and poured out drink-offering unto her, did we make her cakes to worship her, and pour out drink-offering unto her, without our men?  Then Jeremiah said unto all the people, to the men, and to the women, and to all the people which had given him that answer, saying, the incense that ye burned in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem, ye, and your fathers, your kings, and your princes, and the people of the land, did not the Lord remember them, and came it not unto his mind?  So that the Lord could no longer bear, because of the evil of your doings, and because of the abominations which ye have committed; therefore is your land a desolation, and an astonishment, and a curse, without an inhabitant, as at this day.  Because ye have burned incense, and because ye have sinned against the Lord, and have not obeyed the voice of the Lord, nor walked in his law, nor in his statutes, not in his testimonies; therefore this evil is happened unto you, as at this day.  Moreover Jeremiah said unto all the people, and to all the women, Hear the word of the Lord, all Judah that are in the land of Egypt: Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, saying; Ye and your wives have both spoken with your mouths and fulfilled with your hands, saying, We will surely perform our vows that we have vowed to burn incense to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink-offering unto her: ye will surely accomplish your vows, and surely perform your vows.” {Jeremiah 44:17-25).
