Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 14:5

_ _ That I may take — that is, unveil and overtake with punishment the dissimulation and impiety of Israel hid in their own heart. Or, rather, “That I may punish them by answering them after their own hearts”; corresponding to “according to the multitude of his idols” (see on Ezekiel 14:4); an instance is given in Ezekiel 14:9; Romans 1:28; 2 Thessalonians 2:11, God giving them up in wrath to their own lie.

_ _ idols — though pretending to “inquire” of Me, “in their hearts” they are “estranged from Me,” and love “idols.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 14:1-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 14:5

Take — That I may lay open what is in their heart, and discover their hypocrisy, and impiety. Through their idols — It is always through some idol or other, that the hearts of men are estranged from God: some creature has gained that place in the heart, which belongs to none but God.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Ezekiel 14:5

That (e) I may take the house of Israel in their own heart, because they are all estranged from me through their idols.
