    King James Bible - Ezekiel 8:3

    And he put forth the form of an hand, and took me by a lock of mine head; and the spirit lifted me up between the earth and the heaven, and brought me in the visions of God to Jerusalem, to the door of the inner gate that looketh toward the north; where was the seat of the image of jealousy, which provoketh to jealousy.

    World English Bible

    He put forth the form of a
    hand, and took me by a lock of my head; and the Spirit lifted me up between earth and the sky, and brought me in the visions of God to Jerusalem, to the door of the gate of the inner [court] that looks toward the north; where there was the seat of the image of jealousy, which provokes to jealousy.

    Douay-Rheims - Ezekiel 8:3

    And the likeness of a
    hand was put forth and took me by a lock of my head: and the spirit lifted me up between the earth and the heaven, and brought me in the vision of God into Jerusalem, near the inner gate, that looked toward the north, where was set the idol of jealousy to provoke to jealousy.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    And he put forth the form of a
    hand, and took me by a lock of my head; and the spirit lifted me up between the earth and the heaven, and brought me in the visions of God to Jerusalem, to the door of the inner gate that looketh towards the north; where was the seat of the image of jealousy, which provoketh to jealousy.

    VERSE (3) -
    Eze 2:9 Da 5:5; 10:10,18

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:3

    Y aquella semejanza extendió la mano, y me tomó por las guedejas de mi cabeza; y el Espíritu me alzó entre el cielo y la tierra, y me llevó en visiones de Dios a Jerusalén, a la entrada de la puerta de adentro que mira hacia el aquilón, donde estaba la habitación de la imagen del celo, la que hacía celar.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Ezekiel 8:3

    Verse 3. The image of
    jealousy] hanqh lms semel hakkinah. We do not know certainly of what form this image was, nor what god it represented. Some say it was the image of Baal, which was placed in the temple by Manasses; others, that it was the image of Mars; and others, that it was the image of Tammuz or Adonis. Calmet supports this opinion by the following reasons: - 1. The name agrees perfectly with him. He was represented as a beautiful youth, beloved by Venus; at which Mars, her paramour, being incensed and filled with jealousy, sent a large boar against Adonis, which killed him with his tusks. Hence it was the image of him who fell a victim to jealousy. 2. The prophet being returned towards the northern gate, where he had seen the image of jealousy, ver. 14, there saw the women lamenting for Tammuz. Now Tammuz, all agree, signifies Adonis; it was that therefore which was called the image of jealousy. 3.

    The Scripture often gives to the heathen idols names of degradation; as Baal-zebub, god of flies; Baal-zebul; god of dung. It is likely that it was Adonis who is called The dead, Leviticus xix. 27, 28; Deut. xiv. 9, because he was worshipped as one dead. And the women represented as worshipping him were probably adulteresses, and had suffered through the jealousy of their husbands. And this worship of the image of jealousy provoked God to jealousy, to destroy this bad people.


    Matthew Henry Commentary
    The idolatries
    committed by the Jewish rulers. (Ezek. 8:1-6) The superstitions to which the Jews were then devoted, the Egyptian. (Ezek 8:7-12) The Phoenician. (Ezek. 8:13,14) The Persian. (Ezek. 8:15,16 The heinousness of their sin. (Ezek. 8:17,18)

    Ezek. 8:1-6 The glorious personage Ezekiel beheld in vision, seemed to take hold upon him, and he was conveyed in spirit to Jerusalem. There in the inner court of the temple, was prepared a place for some bas idol. The whole was presented in vision to the prophet. If it shoul please God to give any man a clear view of his glory and majesty, an of all the abominations committing in any one city, he would then admi the justice of the severest punishments God should inflict thereon.

    Ezek. 8:7-12 A secret place was, as it were, opened, where the prophe saw creatures painted on the walls, and a number of the elders of Israel worshipped before them. No superiority in worldly matters wil preserve men from lust, or idolatries, when they are left to their ow deceitful hearts; and those who are soon wearied in the service of God often grudge no toil nor expense when following their superstitions When hypocrites screen themselves behind the wall of an outwar profession, there is some hole or other left in the wall, somethin that betrays them to those who look diligently. There is a great dea of secret wickedness in the world. They think themselves out of God' sight. But those are ripe indeed for ruin, who lay the blame of their sins upon the Lord.

    Ezek. 8:13-18 The yearly lamenting for Tammuz was attended with infamous practices; and the worshippers of the sun here described, ar supposed to have been priests. The Lord appeals to the prophe concerning the heinousness of the crime; "and lo, they put the branc to their nose," denoting some custom used by idolaters in honour of the idols they served. The more we examine human nature and our own hearts the more abominations we shall discover; and the longer the believe searches himself, the more he will humble himself before God, and the more will he value the fountain open for sin, and seek to wash therein __________________________________________________________________
