Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 5:17


5:17 Then - When God shall have finished that work of judgment. The lambs - The poor and harmless people, who shall be left in the land when the rich are carried into captivity. Manner - Or, by their fold, as this word is manifestly used, #Mic 2:12|, the only place of scripture, except this, in which this word is found. Waste places - The lands left by their owners. Fat ones - Of the rich and great men. Strangers - The poor Israelites, who were left to be vine - dressers and husbandmen, #2Kings 25:12|, who are called strangers, because they were so, in reference to that hand, not being the proper owners of it.
