As for the beauty of his ornament, he set it in
Or, "for pride" F9. The gold, silver, jewels, riches, and treasure, which the Lord gave to this people, they made a bad use of; and instead of contributing to the support of his worship and interest, and of giving liberally to the poor, they converted it to their own pride and luxury: or rather the temple, as Jarchi and Kimchi interpret it, is meant; which was a beautiful structure, and adorned with gifts, and set for glory, majesty, and excellency by the Lord; yea, where his excellent Majesty dwelt himself: but they made the images of their abominations [and] of their
detestable things therein;
or, "of it" F11; that is, of their gold and silver, which is another bad use they put their riches to: or rather "in it" F12; that is, the temple; where, having made their idols, they placed them; see ( Jeremiah 7:30 ) ; therefore have I set it far from them;
that being destroyed, and they being carried away captive into a strange land, far from that.
