Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 7:24

_ _ worst of the heathen — literally, “wicked of the nations”; the giving up of Israel to their power will convince the Jews that this is a final overthrow.

_ _ pomp of ... strong — the pride wherewith men “stiff of forehead” despise the prophet.

_ _ holy places — the sacred compartments of the temple (Psalms 68:35; Jeremiah 51:51) [Calvin]. God calls it “their holy places,” because they had so defiled it that He regarded it no longer as His. However, as the defilement of the temple has already been mentioned (Ezekiel 7:20, Ezekiel 7:22), and “their sacred places” are introduced as a new subject, it seems better to understand this of the places dedicated to their idols. As they defiled God’s sanctuary, He will defile their self-constituted “sacred places.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 7:23-27.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 7:24

The pomp — The magnificence and glory, wherein they boasted; or the temple that the Jews gloried in.
