Ezekiel 21:2

_ _ the holy places — the three parts of the temple: the courts, the holy place, and the holiest. If “synagogues” existed before the Babylonian captivity, as Psalms 74:8 seems to imply, they and the proseuche, or oratories, may be included in the “holy places” here.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 21:1-7.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 21:2

The holy places — The temple and all parts of it.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Ezekiel 21:2
