Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Amos 6:6

_ _ drink ... in bowls — in the large vessels or basins in which wine was mixed; not satisfied with the smaller cups from which it was ordinarily drunk, after having been poured from the large mixer.

_ _ chief ointments — that is, the most costly: not for health or cleanliness, but wanton luxury.

_ _ not grieved for the affliction of Joseph — literally, “the breach,” that is, the national wound or calamity (Psalms 60:2; Ezekiel 34:4) of the house of Joseph (Amos 5:6); resembling in this the heartlessness of their forefathers, the sons of Jacob, towards Joseph, “eating bread” while their brother lay in the pit, and then selling him to Ishmaelites.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Amos 6:1-7.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Amos 6:6

In bowls — Not in little vessels, but probably bowls: they drank these filled as full as they could hold too, and in design to drink each other down. And anoint — In those hot countries this anointing was much used. Not grieved — Nothing affected with the calamities of their country.

Amos 6:6

That drink wine in bowls, and anoint themselves with the chief ointments: but they are not (f) grieved for the affliction of Joseph.
