Ezekiel 16:18

Ezekiel 16:18

And tookest thy broidered garments, and coveredst them
The images of men, the idols they worshipped; see ( Jeremiah 10:4 ) ; so the Papists at this day cover their idols, the images of the Virgin Mary, and other saints, with rich apparel, to draw the attention, admiration, and reverence of the people to them: and thou hast set mine oil and mine incense before them;
the oil which the Lord gave them for food, the land of Canaan being a land of oil olive; or which was to light the lamps in the temple with; or was used in sacrifice to the Lord, particularly in the meat offerings; and the incense, which was offered unto him on the altar of incense; these were set upon the altars of idols, and before them, the male images before mentioned; see ( Hosea 2:8 ) .
