And ye have done worse than your fathers
Not only committed the same sins, but greater, or, however,
attended with more aggravating circumstances; they were wilfully
and impudently done, and obstinately persisted in; and therefore
deserving of the great evil of punishment pronounced against
them. For, behold, ye walk everyone after the imagination
of his evil heart;
they walked not as the word of God directs, but as their own evil
heart dictated; the imagination of which was evil, and that
continually, ( Genesis 6:5 ) .
That they may not hearken unto me;
to the word of the Lord, and obey that; their minds being
blinded, and their hearts hardened, and they obstinately bent on
their own evil ways.
