John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Psalms 78:58

For they provoked him to anger with their high places
Which they built to Baal, and other Heathen dieties:

and moved him to jealousy with their graven images;
which they worshipped, see ( Judges 10:6 ) , which idolatry was spiritual adultery, and so made the Lord jealous of them, who stood in the relation of a husband to them, as a man becomes jealous by the unchaste and lascivious conduct of his wife; and such a course of life the Israelites lived, throughout the reigns of the judges, at certain seasons, until the times of Eli and Samuel, when the ark was carried captive, of which mention is made in the following verses.
