CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
16:8 Go - God did not only forbid his prophet to go into houses of mourning, but forbad him to go into houses, where they were wont to eat and drink upon a more chearful account.
Better to spend your time at funerals than at parties. After all, everyone dies--so the living should take this to heart.
At that time the Lord, the LORD of Heaven's Armies, called you to weep and mourn. He told you to shave your heads in sorrow for your sins and to wear clothes of burlap to show your remorse.
I never joined the people in their merry feasts. I sat alone because your hand was on me. I was filled with indignation at their sins.
How terrible for you who sprawl on ivory beds and lounge on your couches, eating the meat of tender lambs from the flock and of choice calves fattened in the stall.
