Hath oppressed the poor and needy
Who are weak, and have none to help them, and stand by them, and so are oppressed by such a man. This serves to explain the clause, in ( Ezekiel 18:7 ) ; hath spoiled by violence;
his neighbour's goods; taken them away from him by force: hath not restored the pledge;
to the borrower before sunset, but kept it for his own use; taking the advantage of the poverty of him that borrowed of him: and hath lifted up his eyes to the idols;
whether of the Gentiles, or of the house of Israel: hath committed abomination;
either idolatry, the sin just before mentioned, which was an abomination to the Lord; or else approaching to a menstruous woman, since this follows the other in ( Ezekiel 18:6 ) ; and is not mentioned, unless it is designed here; and so Kimchi interprets it; but Jarchi understands it of the abominable and detestable sin of sodomy: it may regard any and every sin that is abominable in the sight of God.
