Parallel Commentaries
Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary

6:1-7. War desolates persons, places, and things esteemed most sacred. God ruins idolatries even by the hands of idolaters. It is just with God to make that a desolation, which we make an idol. The superstitions to which many trust for safety, often cause their ruin. And the day is at hand, when idols and idolatry will be as thoroughly destroyed from the professedly Christian church as they were from among the Jews.

Gill's Exposition of the Entire Bible

And I will lay the dead carcasses of the children of Israel before their idols,.... Which is repeated for the confirmation of it:

and I will scatter your bones round about your altars: which were reckoned a pollution of them; see 2 Kings 23:14.

Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Bible Commentary

5. carcasses … before … idols—polluting thus with the dead bones of you, the worshippers, the idols which seemed to you so sacrosanct.
