In this chapter we have,
I. A sinful people studying to put a slight upon God's threatenings and to make them appear trivial, confiding in their privileges and pre-eminences above other nations (ver. 2, 3), and their power (ver. 13), and wholly addicted to their pleasures, ver. 4-6.
II. A serious prophet studying to put a weight upon God's threatenings and to make them appear terrible, by setting forth the severity of those judgments that were coming upon these sensualists (ver. 7), God's abhorring them, and abandoning them and theirs to death (ver. 8-11), and bringing utter desolation upon them, since they would not be wrought upon by the methods he had taken for their conviction, ver. 12-14.
