George Haydock's Catholic Bible Commentary
Ezekiel 6



Verse 2

Mountains, where idols were chiefly adored. Here their votaries find death. (Worthington) --- Israel, including all God's people, as the sacred writers make no distinction (Calmet) after the destruction of Samaria.

Verse 4

Idols. Protestant marginal note, "sun-images," as [in] ver. 6. The sun was much worshipped, chap. viii. 16. (Haydock)

Verse 5

Bones. The Chaldeans violated the tombs, Baruch ii. 24., and Jeremias viii. 1. (Calmet)

Verse 8

Some. Providence still preserves some faithful or penitent souls. (Worthington)

Verse 9

Broken. Adversity has made them repent.

Verse 11

Foot, through indignation or pity. (Calmet)

Verse 14

From, or, "more than," (Haydock) as Hebrew may signify. Deblatha was in the land of Moab, Numbers xxxiii. 46. (Calmet)


Verse 17
