"We will do everything that we have vowed, burn incense to the Queen of Heaven and pour out libations to her, as we did, both we and our fathers...and prospered, and saw no evil." (Jeremiah 44:17)
My Lady, Queen of Heaven
The word Madonna literally means "My Lady". It is an ancient term that goes way back to the Babylonian goddess Belit ("Lady"), the wife of Bel ("Lord") also known as Baal. This title has been given to countless goddesses ever since, including Ishtar, Astarte, Ashtoreth, and especially Isis of Egypt. Isis was particularly revered as a mother with her infant child Horus on her lap. So great was the influence of this "lady" that even when the Egyptian empire collapsed, long after Cleopatra had dropped in to seduce Caesar with her charms and religion, the cult of Isis was more popular in Rome than any other in town. It still is.
God sent his prophets to tell people that they were deceiving only themselves, that the worship of the Queen of Heaven was an "abomination which I hate" and one of the prime reasons why He was "watching over them for evil and not for good." (Jeremiah 44:4,27) They did not listen. They had no ears to hear it. They still don't.
