Ezekiel 13:23 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Ye shall see no more vanity - They pretended visions; but they were empty of reality.

Nor divine divinations - As God would not speak to them, they employed demons. Where God is not, because of the iniquity of the people, the devil is, to strengthen and support that iniquity. And if he cannot have his priests, he will have his priestesses; and these will have a Church like themselves, full of lying doctrines, and bad works.

That the Ruler Should not Set his Heart on Pleasing Men, and yet Should Give Heed to what Ought to Please Them.

For he is the Redeemer's enemy who through the good works which he does covets being loved

Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her. And the kings of the
