Chambers Of Imagery

CHAMBERS OF IMAGERY [ISBE]

CHAMBERS OF IMAGERY - im'-aj-ri, im'-a-jer-i (maskith): The reference (Ezek 8:12) is to chambers in the temple where the elders of Israel were wont to assemble and practice rites of an idolatrous character. What the imagery consisted of, we may gather from 8:10: symbolic representations of beasts and reptiles and "detestable things." It is thought that these symbols were of a zodiacal character. The worship of the planets was in vogue at the time of the prophet among the degenerate Israelites.
