While alone in my study of Ezek 16:3-14 and realized something that I didn't notice before. The Lord states that Jerusalem was of Cananite descent with the father being a Amorite and the mother a Hittite. So my question here is...
1. Was this in reference of Adam since God did breath life into him or
2. Was it reference to Jacob, since his name meant "deceiver" and the Lord changed it to "Israel" after he wrestled with the angel of the Lord or
3. Is it in reference of the nation as a whole

Because what I am getting from this is Jerusalem was a pagan nation; the worst and least of all nations which by God's grace and only His grace they were chosen
