    Lightbulb Which OT prophet married a prostitute?

    Found this on the web (emphasis added):
    Ezekiel was a patriotic prophet. He proved his love for the nation of Israel over and over again in ways that were sacrificial, uncomfortable and downright humbling. In utter obedience to the word of the Lord, Ezekiel, for example, married an unfaithful prostitute.
    I thought that was Hosea rather than Ezekiel, although the latter does contain a parable (allegory?) about God marrying "Oholah the elder and Oholibah her sister" who "played the harlot in their youth".

    I worry about any ministry named after its leader. Definitely Hosea, and perhaps there is an extra-Biblical tradition I don't know of that says Ezekial also married a prostitute.

    I believe that Ezekiel was a priest, and so it would have been a sin for him to marry a prostitute.

    Leviticus 21:13
    And he shall take a wife in her virginity
