Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 16:19

_ _ My meat ... I gave — (Hosea 2:8).

_ _ set it before them — as a minchah or “meat offering” (Leviticus 2:1).

_ _ a sweet savour — literally, “a savor of rest,” that is, whereby they might be propitiated, and be at peace (“rest”) with you; how ridiculous to seek to propitiate gods of wood!

_ _ thus it was — The fact cannot be denied, for I saw it, and say it was so, saith Jehovah.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 16:15-34.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 16:19

For a sweet savour — To gain the favour of the idol. Thus it was — All which is undeniable.

meat:

Ezekiel 16:13 Thus wast thou decked with gold and silver; and thy raiment [was of] fine linen, and silk, and broidered work; thou didst eat fine flour, and honey, and oil: and thou wast exceeding beautiful, and thou didst prosper into a kingdom.
Deuteronomy 32:14-17 Butter of kine, and milk of sheep, with fat of lambs, and rams of the breed of Bashan, and goats, with the fat of kidneys of wheat; and thou didst drink the pure blood of the grape. ... They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new [gods that] came newly up, whom your fathers feared not.
Hosea 2:8-13 For she did not know that I gave her corn, and wine, and oil, and multiplied her silver and gold, [which] they prepared for Baal. ... And I will visit upon her the days of Baalim, wherein she burned incense to them, and she decked herself with her earrings and her jewels, and she went after her lovers, and forgat me, saith the LORD.

a sweet savour:
Heb. a savour of rest,
Genesis 8:21 And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake; for the imagination of man's heart [is] evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.
