Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 16:54

_ _ bear thine own shame — by being put on a level with those whom thou hast so much despised.

_ _ thou art a comfort unto them — since they see thee as miserable as themselves. It is a kind of melancholy “comfort” to those chastised to see others as sorely punished as themselves (Ezekiel 14:22, Ezekiel 14:23).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 16:44-59.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 16:54

A comfort — Encouraging sinners like those of Sodom and Samaria.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Ezekiel 16:54

That thou mayest bear thy own shame, and mayest be confounded in all that thou hast done, in that thou art a (f) comfort to them.

(f) In that you have shown yourself worse than they and yet thought to escape punishment.
