    Clarke's Commentary on Ezekiel 7:20

    As for the beauty of his ornament - Their beautiful temple was their highest ornament, and God made it majestic by his presence. But they have even taken its riches to make their idols, which they have brought into the very courts of the Lord's house; and therefore God hath set it - the temple, from him - given it up to pillage. Some say it means, "They took their ornaments, which were their pride, and made them into images to worship."

    Barnes' Notes on Ezekiel 7:20

    Or, And "the beauty of his ornament, he" (the people) turned "it" to pride.

    Have I set it far from them - Rather, as in the margin - therefore have I made it their defilement and their disgrace.

    Wesley's Notes on Ezekiel 7:20

    7:20 The beauty - The temple, and all that pertained to it, which was the beauty and glory of that nation. He set - God commanded it should be beautiful and magnificent. Images - Their idols. Far from them - I have sent them far from the temple.
