To Prevent a Revolt to False Gods

Matthew Henry:

“To prevent a revolt to false gods, we are forbidden to worship the true God in such a way and manner as the false gods were worshiped in, and are commanded to observe the instituted ordinances of worship that we may adhere to the proper object of worship…. [Thus] they [pagan methods, practices, places, customs, etc.] must be destroyed…so the varying names of them might be buried in oblivion.”

~Matthew Henry, Commentary on the Whole Bible, 1:774.
