Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 20:8-9

_ _ then I said, I will ... But, etc. — that is, (God speaking in condescension to human modes of conception) their spiritual degradation deserved I should destroy them, “but I wrought (namely, the deliverance ‘out of ... Egypt’) for My name’s sake”; not for their merits (a rebuke to their national pride). God’s “name” means the sum-total of His perfections. To manifest these, His gratuitous mercy abounding above their sins, yet without wrong to His justice, and so to set forth His glory, was and is the ultimate end of His dealings (Ezekiel 20:14, Ezekiel 20:22; 2 Samuel 7:23; Isaiah 63:12; Romans 9:17).

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Ezekiel 20:8

But they rebelled against me, and would not hearken to me: they did not every man cast away the abominations of (e) their eyes, neither did they forsake the idols of Egypt: then I said, I will pour out my fury upon them, to accomplish my anger against them in the midst of the land of Egypt.

(e) Which declares the wickedness of man's heart, who judge God's service by their eyes and outward senses.
