Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 16:52

_ _ Thou ... which hast judged ... bear thine own — (Matthew 7:1, Matthew 7:2; Romans 2:1, Romans 2:17-23). Judah had judged Sodom (representing “the heathen nations”) and Samaria (Israel), saying they were justly punished, as if she herself was innocent (Luke 13:2).

_ _ thy shame — ignominious punishment.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 16:44-59.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 16:52

Hast judged — Condemned their apostacy, and hast judged their punishment just.
