    Clarke's Commentary on Matthew 23:38

    Behold, your house - Ο οικος, the temple: - this is certainly what is meant. It was once the Lord's temple, God's Own house; but now he says, Your temple or house - to intimate that God had abandoned it. See the note on Matthew 23:21; see also on Luke 13:35 (note).

    Barnes' Notes on Matthew 23:38

    Your house - The temple. The house of worship of the Jews. The chief ornament of Jerusalem.

    Desolate - About to be desolate or destroyed. To be forsaken as a place of worship, and delivered into the hands of the Romans, and destroyed. See the notes at Matthew 24.
