Isaiah 5:12

 

 

12 And the
harp,
[kinnowr] and the viol, [nebel] the
tabret,
[toph] and pipe, [chaliyl] and wine, [yayin] are in
their feasts:
[mishteh] but they regard [nabat] not the work [po`al] of the
LORD,
[Yahovah] neither consider [ra’ah] the operation [ma`aseh] of
his hands.
[yad] KJV-Interlinear

 

12 And
their banquets are accompanied by lyre and harp, by tambourine and flute, and
by wine; But they do not pay attention to the deeds of the Lord, Nor do they
consider the work of His hands.  NASB

Begin study:

 

The harp is a stringed musical instrument. The viol, sometimes called the lyre, is another stringed musical instrument. The tabret was a drum style musical instrument similar to the tambourine. The pipe is a flute like instrument.

And so the party continues from morning until into the night.

This describes the atmosphere and the attitude of those who have succumbed to evil in their lives.

From previous verses, the world around them is destitute of economic activity. Productivity has plummeted to virtually nothing, and yet the attitude is one of partying, and disregard to the problems all around. Not the least of which is doctrine, which had been disregarded and forgotten long before.

When doctrine is ignored, not learned, disregarded and replaced with other influences, influences that become more important to the life of the individual, than orientation to life, then priorities in life, obligations and responsibilities of life, all get set aside and replaced with irresponsibility and poor priorities.

Even when life goes downhill, even when the most notable events exist, such as a non-productive economy, such as empty homes, they are not recognized as the results of ones lifestyle, if they are even recognized at all.

Responsibility is replaced with entertainment and self-pleasures, and the pleasures are pursued day after day, becoming the pattern of ones life. The dire economic situation seems acceptable.

Today (2012) our economy has been worse off for the last three years and a bit more. Four years ago unemployment was below five percent, today the national debt has far more than doubled, in Europe the situation is far worse, and yet there is no alarm, no recognition as to the cause, but a push for more of the same, which is the worst possible plan. And yet people are doing exactly what this chapter describes. They reject truth and are pushing for more and more of the current patterns of life.

God, Christ, doctrine, are all set aside, ignored, replaced with ‘better’ philosophies or beliefs, and that turning aside from doctrine is not recognized as wrong, but is rejected for something that is perceived as better, but is not.

And now in 2019, the economy is far better, and yet the politics of the day are more focused on the taking of power, rather than the preservation of the liberties and freedoms of the people.

What can anyone reasonably expect if attitudes toward God do not change?

 

 

End of study

 

 

 




 

Study [by instruction],

to show thyself approved [spiritually mature]

unto God,

a workman [student]

that need not be ashamed [ignorant],

rightly dividing [learning, understanding, discerning]

the word of truth [Bible doctrine].

If you can dream and not make dreams your master,

If you can think and not let thoughts narrow your views,

If you can meet triumph with disaster equally,

If you can learn and see your full meaning and purpose in life,

Then you can believe in Christ, learn Bible doctrine, and grow far beyond the potential that God has prepared for you.

These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.

And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever.

To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.

The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.

But each person has to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.

Keep in the Word, Isa. 41:10.
