Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 16:25

_ _ at every head of the way — in the most frequented places (Proverbs 9:14).

_ _ thy beauty ... abhorred, ... opened ... feet to every one — The wanton advances were all on Israel’s part; the idolatrous nations yielded to her nothing in return. She had yielded so much that, like a worn-out prostitute, her tempters became weary of her. When the Church lowers her testimony for God to the carnal tastes of the world, with a view to conciliation, she loses everything and gains nothing.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 16:15-34.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 16:25

At every head of the way — Not content with what was done in the city, she built her idol temples in the country, wherever it was likely passengers would come.
