Fun Fact: There was once a “Mrs. Yahweh” named Asherah. She was worshiped in the home by women mainly and was the centerpiece of a sex cult of fertility. She was cast out of Judaism in 650 BCE by the male priesthood but not for being female; rather, for being foreign.
The Assyrian army was camped outside of the walls of Jerusalem and the priests were trying to garner favor from Yahweh. It must’ve worked because the Assyrians left. It didn’t work for long though because the Babylonians came later and finished the job destroying the fabled Temple of Solomon.
