Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 24:7

_ _ upon the top of a rock — or, “the dry, bare, exposed rock,” so as to be conspicuous to all. Blood poured on a rock is not so soon absorbed as blood poured on the earth. The law ordered the blood even of a beast or fowl to be “covered with the dust” (Leviticus 17:13); but Jerusalem was so shameless as to be at no pains to cover up the blood of innocent men slain in her. Blood, as the consummation of all sin, presupposes every other form of guilt.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 24:1-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 24:7

The blood — Innocent blood which she hath shed. The top of a rock — Where it might be long seen. To cover it — These butchers of innocent ones leave their blood uncovered.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Ezekiel 24:7

(i) The city showed her cruelty to all the world, and was not ashamed of it, neither yet hid it.
