Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 56:12

_ _ fetch wine — language of the national teachers challenging one another to drink. Barnes translates, “I will take another cup” (Isaiah 5:11).

_ _ to-morrow, etc. — Their self-indulgence was habitual and intentional: not merely they drink, but they mean to continue so.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 56:9-12.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 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.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 56:12

Come ye, [say they], I will bring wine, and we will fill ourselves with strong drink; and to (l) morrow shall be as this day, [and] much more abundant.

(l) We are well yet, and to morrow will be better: therefore let us not fear the plagues before they come: thus the wicked contemned the admonition and exhortations which were made to them in the Name of God.
