Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 7:20

_ _ beauty of his ornament — the temple of Jehovah, the especial glory of the Jews, as a bride glories in her ornaments (the very imagery used by God as to the temple, Ezekiel 16:10, Ezekiel 16:11). Compare Ezekiel 24:21 : “My sanctuary, the excellency of your strength, the desire of your eyes.”

_ _ images ... therein — namely, in the temple (Ezekiel 8:3-17).

_ _ set it far from them — God had “set” the temple (their “beauty of ornament”) “for His majesty”; but they had set up “abominations therein”; therefore God, in just retribution, “set it far from them,” (that is, removed them far from it, or took it away from them [Vatablus]). The Margin translates, “Made it unto them an unclean thing” (compare Margin on Ezekiel 7:19, “removed”); what I designed for their glory they turned to their shame, therefore I will make it turn to their ignominy and ruin.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 7:16-22.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 7:20

The beauty — The temple, and all that pertained to it, which was the beauty and glory of that nation. He set — God commanded it should be beautiful and magnificent. Images — Their idols. Far from them — I have sent them far from the temple.
