Parallel Verses
New American Standard Bible
"You took some of your clothes, made for yourself high places of various colors and played the harlot on them, which should never come about nor happen.

King James Bible
And of thy garments thou didst take, and deckedst thy high places with divers colours, and playedst the harlot thereupon: the like things shall not come, neither shall it be so.

Holman Christian Standard Bible
You took some of your garments and made colorful high places for yourself, and you engaged in prostitution on them. These places should not have been built, and this should never have happened!
