Ezekiel 13:18-20; "women sew pillows to all armholes," rather "to all elbows and wrists." False prophetesses made cushions to lean on, typifying the tranquillity they foretold to their votaries. Compare Ezekiel 13:16," which see visions of peace ... and there is no peace." Perhaps they made their dupes rest on these pillows in fancied ecstasy after making them first stand, from whence the expression is "of every stature" for men of every age. The male prophets "built a wall with untempered mortar" (Ezekiel 13:10), the women sewed pillows; both alike promising "peace" to the impenitent.
