In all your dwelling places your cities shall be laid waste,
&c.] Which denotes that the desolation should be general, wherever they had cities and places to dwell in; the idolatry being universal, as is said in ( Jeremiah 2:28 ) ; and the high places shall be desolate;
meaning such as were in cities; as, before, such as were built upon mountains and hills; see ( 2 Kings 23:5 ) ; that your altars may be laid waste and desolate;
as they must be, the cities being destroyed in which they were set up: and your idols may be broken and cease, and your images may be cut
such as were made of gold and silver, or of wood and stone; the same words are used for them as in ( Ezekiel 6:4 ) ; and your works may be abolished;
not only the works of their hands, but of their brain; whatever they had devised, and was contrary to the pure word and worship of God.
