Ezekiel 16:45

Ezekiel 16:45

Thou [art] thy mother's daughter
Exactly like her; they that have known the one must know the other. The Targum is,

``wherefore art thou become the daughter of the land of Canaan, to do according to the works of the people?''
that loatheth her husband and her children;
a true character of an adulteress; and which agrees both with the mother the Canaanites, and with the daughter the Jews; who both despised, rejected, and forsook God their husband, Creator, and lawgiver, and sacrificed their children to idols; see ( Ezekiel 16:20 Ezekiel 16:21 ) ( Leviticus 18:21 Leviticus 18:24 ) ; and thou [art] the sister of thy sisters;
the true genuine sister of them, Samaria and Sodom after mentioned; being not only allied to them in blood, more nearly to the one more remotely to the other, but exceedingly alike in manners, religion, and worship: which loatheth their husbands and their children;
as before: your mother [was] an Hittite, and your father an Amorite;
these the Israelites succeeded in their land, and followed their customs; (See Gill on Ezekiel 16:3). The Targum is,
``was not your mother Sarah among the Hittites? and she did not do according to their works; and your father Abraham was among the Amorites, and he walked not in their counsels.''
