Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 5:10


5:10 One bath - Of wine. The bath contained about eight gallons. Thus an acre did not yield one gallon. An ephah - Which was of the same quantity with the bath, only the bath was the measure of liquid things, the ephah of dry things; and a ephah was the tenth part of an homer. So instead of the increase which that fruitful land commonly yielded, they should loose nine parts of their seed.


Discussion for Isaiah 5:10

  • Mpofu bhekitemba for verse 10
    God has power to use material things to accomplish his purpose. He could've sent Angels to rebuke the madness of israel's sinful nature. Thru the sanction of hunger though after man had made his efforts to prevail God would hinder them from success. same applies to us. we can be hindered due to our wickedness! God's real.lol
