Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 16:7

_ _ caused ... to multiply — literally, “I ... made thee a myriad.”

_ _ bud of ... field — the produce of the field. In two hundred fifty years they increased from seventy-five persons to eight hundred thousand (Acts 7:14) [Calvin]. But see Exodus 12:37, Exodus 12:38.

_ _ excellent ornaments — literally, “ornament of ornaments.”

_ _ naked ... bare — (Hosea 2:3). Literally, “nakedness ... bareness” itself; more emphatic.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 16:6-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 16:7

Thou art come — Thou wast adorned with the choicest blessings of Divine Providence. Thy breasts — Grown up and fashioned under God's own hand in order to be solemnly affianced to God.
