John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Judges 9:27

Went out — Which, 'till his coming they durst not do, for fear of Abimelech. Made merry — Both from the custom of rejoicing, and singing songs in vintage time, and for the hopes of their redemption from Abimelech's tyranny. Their goals — Baal — berith, Judges 9:4, either to beg his help against Abimelech, or to give him thanks for the hopes of recovering their liberty. Eat and drink — To the honour of their idols, and out of the oblations made to them, as they used to do to the honour of Jehovah, and out of his sacrifices. Cursed — Either by reviling him after their manner, or, rather in a more solemn and religious manner, cursing him by their god, as Goliath did David.
