(30) And I will destroy your high places.--Though these eminences were also used for the worship of Jehovah (Judges 6:25-26; Judges 13:16-23; 1Samuel 7:10; 1Kings 3:2; 2Kings 12:3; 1Chronicles 21:26, &c.), the context shows that the high places here are such as were dedicated to idolatrous worship (Numbers 22:41; Numbers 33:52; Deuteronomy 12:2; Joshua 13:17, &c.). By the destruction of these places of idolatrous worship, the Israelites would see how utterly worthless those deities were whom they preferred to the God who had wrought such signal redemption for them. . . .
