    Definitions for Ezekiel 43:9

    Let - To hinder or obstruct.

    Clarke's Commentary on Ezekiel 43:9

    Now let them put away their whoredom - Their idolatry.

    And the carcasses of their kings - It appears that God was displeased with their bringing their kings so near his temple. David was buried in the city of David, which was on Mount Zion, near to the temple; and so were almost all the kings of Judah; but God requires that the place of his temple and its vicinity shall be kept unpolluted; and when they put away all kinds of defilement, then will he dwell among them.
