58. You has borne thy lewdness and your abominations, says the Lord.
58. Pravas cogitationes tuas,1 et abominationes tuas, tu portasti ea, dicit Iehovah.
Here God repeats what we saw before, that the Jews were deprived of all excuse. We know how bold they were in their expostulations, and how they always cried out when God treated them severely. Because, therefore, complaints were always flying about from this proud people, here, as before, God pronounces that they deserved their sufferings: you bear, says he, not any immoderate rigor of which you falsely accuse me, but your abominations and crimes.
1 Or, "your enormities." -- Calvin.
