Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Leviticus 26:30

_ _ I will destroy your high places — Consecrated enclosures on the tops of mountains, or on little hillocks, raised for practicing the rites of idolatry.

_ _ cut down your images — According to some, those images were made in the form of chariots (2 Kings 23:11); according to others, they were of a conical form, like small pyramids. Reared in honor of the sun, they were usually placed on a very high situation, to enable the worshippers to have a better view of the rising sun. They were forbidden to the Israelites, and when set up, ordered to be destroyed.

_ _ cast your carcases upon the carcases of your idols, etc. — Like the statues of idols, which, when broken, lie neglected and contemned, the Jews during the sieges and subsequent captivity often wanted the rites of sepulture.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Leviticus 26:14-39.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Leviticus 26:30

High places — In which you will sacrifice after the manner of the Heathens. The carcases of your idols — So he calls them, either to signify that their idols how specious soever or glorious in their eyes, were in truth but lifeless and contemptible carcases; or to shew that their idols should be so far from helping them, that they should be thrown down and broken with them, and both should lie together in a forlorn and loathsome state.
