Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 56:12


56:12 Say they - Unto their brethren, fellow - priests, or other jolly companions. Fill ourselves - We will drink not only to delight, but even to drunkenness, as the word signifies, which shews their dreadful security and contempt of God, and their abandoning of all care of their own or peoples souls.


Discussion for Isaiah 56:12

  • And much more abundant, unaware of the coming doom as prophesied in Revelation. The high mindedness of sinners blocks out the truth of God 's word that contains the eternal salvation of billions of souls who believe and submit to the lordship of Jesus Christ our savior.
