Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 43:9

_ _ carcasses of their kings — It is supposed that some of their idolatrous kings were buried within the bounds of Solomon’s temple [Henderson]. Rather, “the carcasses of their idols,” here called “kings,” as having had lordship over them in past times (Isaiah 26:13); but henceforth Jehovah, alone their rightful lord, shall be their king, and the idols that had been their “king” would appear but as “carcasses.” Hence these defunct kings are associated with the “high places” in Ezekiel 43:7 [Fairbairn]. Leviticus 26:30 and Jeremiah 16:18, confirm this. Manasseh had built altars in the courts of the temple to the host of heaven (2 Kings 21:5; 2 Kings 23:6).

_ _ I will dwell in the midst ... for ever — (Revelation 21:3).

Matthew Henry's Commentary
