    Clarke's Commentary on Ezekiel 16:18

    Hast set mine oil and mine incense before them - It appears that they had made use of the holy vestments, and the different kinds of offerings which belonged to the Lord, to honor their idols.

    Barnes' Notes on Ezekiel 16:18

    Mine oil and mine incense - The oil was the produce of the land, the incense received in exchange for such produce. Both were the gifts of Yahweh and belonged to Him; yet the oil Exodus 25:6; Exodus 29:40 and the incense Exodus 30:34, prepared for the service of God, were used in idol-worship. In nature worship the worshippers were especially lavish in vegetable products like incense.

    Wesley's Notes on Ezekiel 16:18

    16:18 Coveredst - Didst clothe the images thou hadst made. Set mine oil - In lamps to burn before them.
