Bible Commentary

Men pourtrayed upon the wall - See on Ezekiel 8:10; (note).

Albert Barnes
Notes on the Whole Bible

After Israel‘s captivity Judah intrigued first with Assyria, then with Babylon, courting their monarchs, imitating their customs, and learning their idolatries.

Pourtrayed upon the wall - The monuments of Nineveh show how the walls of its palaces were adorned with figures precisely answering to this description. There is evidence that these sculptures were highly colored with vermilion, or rather, red ochre.
