Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 11:21

_ _ whose heart ... after ... heart of ... detestable things — The repetition of “heart” is emphatic, signifying that the heart of those who so obstinately clung to idols, impelled itself to fresh superstitions in one continuous tenor [Calvin]. Perhaps it is implied that they and their idols are much alike in character (Psalms 115:8). The heart walks astray first, the feet follow.

_ _ recompense ... way upon ... heads — They have abandoned Me, so will I abandon them; they profaned My temple, so will I profane it by the Chaldeans (Ezekiel 9:10).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 11:14-21.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 11:21

Heart — Soul and affections. Walketh — Either secretly adhere to, or provide for the service of idols, called here detestable things.
