Moreover this they have done unto me
. The following piece of wickedness, which was very provoking to the Lord: they have defiled my sanctuary in the same day;
as they caused their children to pass through the tire to their idols, by entering into the sanctuary when they had so done, and were thus defiled, and by offering sacrifices to their idols in it; or under pretence of serving the Lord, when they had just been guilty of murder and idolatry: and have profaned my sabbaths;
not only by doing their own worldly and civil business, but by slaying their infants on those days, and sacrificing them to idols.
