Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 16:24

_ _ eminent place — rather, “a fornication-chamber,” often connected with the impure rites of idolatry; spiritual fornication, on “an eminent place,” answering to “fornication-chamber,” is mainly meant, with an allusion also to the literal fornication associated with it (Jeremiah 2:20; Jeremiah 3:2).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 16:15-34.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 16:24

In every street — Idol temples were in every street; both in Jerusalem and her cities.
