Asherah Worshipped as Queen of Heaven

~ Queen of Heaven, Asherah ~

Biblical texts reveal how Asherah was worshipped as the Queen of Heaven in
 Judah and Jerusalem: 

“We will burn incense to the Queen of Heaven 
and will pour out drink offerings to her 
just as we and our fathers, our kings and our officials 
did in the towns of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem. 

At that time we had plenty of food
and were well off and suffered no harm.
But ever since we stopped burning incense to the
Queen of Heaven and pouring out drink offerings to her,
we have had nothing and have been perishing by sword and famine.”
Jeremiah 44:17-18
