New Defender's Study Bible Notes
23:2 two women. This phrase introduces a remarkable allegory, treating the Northern and Southern Kingdoms, respectively, as two sisters who became two harlots. Although there is no connection, there is one other allegory in Scripture, involving two real women, Sarah and Hagar, who were used by the Apostle Paul to represent the conflict between grace and law, or between the Spirit and the flesh.
