CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
21:9 More evil - Partly, because they were not contented with those idols which the Canaanites worshipped, but either invented, or borrowed from other nations many new idols, and partly, because as their light was far more clear, their obligations to God infinitely higher, and their helps against idolatry much stronger than the Canaanites had; so their sins, though the same in kind, were unspeakably worse in respect of these dreadful aggravations.
2 Kings 21:10
Then the LORD said through his servants the prophets:
If a ruler pays attention to liars, all his advisers will be wicked.
"Therefore, this is what the Sovereign LORD says: You people have behaved worse than your neighbors and have refused to obey my decrees and regulations. You have not even lived up to the standards of the nations around you.
But you have not merely sinned as they did. You quickly surpassed them in corruption.
