    Barnes' Notes on Ezekiel 16:16

    Compare 2 Kings 23:7. Such decoration of idol-temples in the holy land showed how the ungrateful people were devoting the wealth and energies which Yahweh had given them to the service of those false gods, in whose worship He was especially dishonored.

    The like things shall not come ... - The abominations reached the very utmost - nothing would hereafter be so bad as these had been.

    Wesley's Notes on Ezekiel 16:16

    16:16 Thy garments - Those costly, royal robes, the very wedding clothes. High places - Where the idol was. With divers colours - With those beautiful clothes I put upon thee. The like things - As there was none before her that had done thus, so shall there be none to follow her in these things.
