Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 23:14

_ _ vermilion — the peculiar color of the Chaldeans, as purple was of the Assyrians. In striking agreement with this verse is the fact that the Assyrian sculptures lately discovered have painted and colored bas-reliefs in red, blue, and black. The Jews (for instance Jehoiakim, Jeremiah 22:14) copied these (compare Ezekiel 8:10).

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Ezekiel 23:14

And [that] she increased her harlotries: for when she saw men (g) portrayed upon the wall, the images of the Chaldeans portrayed with vermilion,

(g) This declares that no words are able to sufficiently express the rage of idolaters and therefore the Holy Spirit here compares them to those who in their raging love and filthy lusts dote on the images and paintings of them after whom they lust.
