Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 6:2

_ _ mountains of Israel — that is, of Palestine in general. The mountains are addressed by personification; implying that the Israelites themselves are incurable and unworthy of any more appeals; so the prophet sent to Jeroboam did not deign to address the king, but addressed the altar (1 Kings 13:2). The mountains are specified as being the scene of Jewish idolatries on “the high places” (Ezekiel 6:3; Leviticus 26:30).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 6:1-7.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 6:2

The mountains — The inhabitants of the mountains, who were secure in their fastnesses.
