Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 23:8

_ _ whoredoms brought from Egypt — the calves set up in Dan and Beth-el by Jeroboam, answering to the Egyptian bull-formed idol Apis. Her alliances with Egypt politically are also meant (Isaiah 30:2, Isaiah 30:3; Isaiah 31:1). The ten tribes probably resumed the Egyptian rites, in order to enlist the Egyptians against Judah (2 Chronicles 12:2-4).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Ezekiel 23:8

Neither left she her harlotries [brought] from Egypt: for in her youth they (e) lay with her, and they bruised the breasts of her virginity, and poured their immorality upon her.

(e) The Holy Spirit uses these terms which seem strange to chaste ears, to cause this wicked vice of idolatry to be so abhorred that no one could stand to hear the name of it.
