Ezekiel 6* The Divine judgments for idolatry. (1-7) A remnant shall besaved. (8-10) The calamities are to be lamented. (11-14) #1-7. War desolates persons, places, and things esteemed mostsacred. God ruins idolatries even by the hands of idolaters. Itis just with God to make that a desolation, which we make anidol. The superstitions to which many trust for safety, oftencause their ruin. And the day is at hand, when idols andidolatry will be as thoroughly destroyed from the professedlyChristian church as they were from among the Jews.8-10 A remnant of Israel should be left; at length they shouldremember the Lord, their obligations to him, and rebellionagainst him. True penitents see sin to be that abominable thingwhich the Lord hates. Those who truly loathe sin, loathethemselves because of sin. They give glory to God by theirrepentance. Whatever brings men to remember Him, and their sinsagainst him, should be regarded as a blessing. 11-14 It is our duty to be affected, not only with our own sinsand sufferings, but to look with compassion upon the miserieswicked people bring upon themselves. Sin is a desolating thing;therefore, stand in awe, and sin not. If we know the worth ofsouls, and the danger to which unbelievers are exposed, we shalldeem every sinner who takes refuge in Jesus from the wrath tocome, an abundant recompence for all contempt or opposition wemay meet with.
