Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 16:14

_ _ thy renown ... among ... heathen — The theocracy reached its highest point under Solomon, when distant potentates heard of his “fame” (1 Kings 10:1, etc.), for example, the queen of Sheba, Hiram, etc. (Lamentations 2:15).

_ _ my comeliness — It was not thine own, but imparted by Me.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 16:6-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 16:14

My comeliness — "That is, thro' the beauty of their holiness, as they were a people devoted to God. This was it that put a lustre upon all their other honours, and was indeed the perfection of their beauty. Sanctified souls are truly beautiful in God's sight, and they themselves may take the comfort of it. But God must have all the glory for whatever comeliness they have, it is that which God has put upon them."
