Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 5:7

_ _ multiplied — rather, “have been more abundantly outrageous”; literally, “to tumultuate”; to have an extravagant rage for idols.

_ _ neither have done according to the judgments of the nations — have not been as tenacious of the true religion as the nations have been of the false. The heathen “changed” not their gods, but the Jews changed Jehovah for idols (see Ezekiel 5:6, “changed My judgments into wickedness,” that is, idolatry, Jeremiah 2:11). The Chaldean version and the Masora support the negative. Others omit it (as it is omitted in Ezekiel 11:12), and translate, “but have done according to the judgments,” etc. However, both Ezekiel 11:12 and also this verse are true. They in one sense “did according to the heathen,” namely, in all that was bad; in another, namely, in that which was good, zeal for religion, they did not. Ezekiel 5:9 also proves the negative to be genuine; because in changing their religion, they have not done as the nations which have not changed theirs, “I (also) will do in thee that which I have not done.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 5:5-17.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 5:7

Multiplied — In idols, superstitions, and wickedness. Neither — You have exceeded them in superstition and idolatry, and fallen short of them in moral virtues.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Ezekiel 5:7

Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because ye (f) multiplied more than the nations that [are] around you, [and] have not walked in my statutes, neither have kept my judgments, neither have done according to the judgments of the nations that [are] around you;

(f) Because your idols are in greater number, and your superstitions more than among the professed idolaters, read (Isaiah 65:11) or he condemns their ingratitude in respect to his benefits.
