John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Ezekiel 23:12

She doted upon the Assyrians her neighbours
As in the times of Ahaz, who sent to Tiglathpileser, king of Assyria, for help; and from whence he took the pattern of an altar, and had one built like it at Jerusalem, and offered upon it, ( 2 Kings 16:7-12 ) , captains and rulers clothed most gorgeously;
or "perfectly" F17; with all kind of precious garments, and of all manner of colours; not with blue only, but purple, scarlet, crimson horsemen riding upon horses, all of them desirable young men;
(See Gill on Ezekiel 23:6).
