Bible Commentary for Isaiah 5:21

Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 5:21


5:19 Let him - God, in whose name thou and other prophets are always threatening us. This was the plain language of their actions; they lived as if they were of this opinion. The Holy One - They scornfully repeated the title usually given by the prophets to God.

5:20 To them - That take away the difference between good and evil; that justify wicked men and things, and condemn piety, or righteous persons.

5:22 To mingle - To drink: the antecedent being put for the consequent: for they mingled it in order to drinking.

5:23 Take away - Pronounce sentence against him.
