Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 16:37

_ _ thy lovers — the Chaldeans and the Assyrians. The law of retribution is the more signally exemplified by God employing, as His instruments of judgment on Israel, those very nations whose alliance and idols Israel had so eagerly sought, besides giving her up to those who had been always her enemies. “God will make him, who leaves God for the world, disgraced even in the eyes of the world, and indeed the more so the nearer he formerly stood to Himself” [Hengstenberg], (Isaiah 47:3; Jeremiah 13:26; Hosea 2:12; Nahum 3:5).

_ _ all ... thou hast hated — the Edomites and Philistines; also Moab and Ammon especially (Deuteronomy 23:3).

_ _ I ... will discover thy nakedness — punishment in kind, as she had “discovered her nakedness through whoredoms” (Ezekiel 16:36); the sin and its penalty corresponded. I will expose thee to public infamy.
