Isaiah 5:22-23 Woe to drunkards

Isa 5:22 How horrible it will be for those who are heroes at drinking wine, who are champions at mixing drinks,
Isa 5:23 who declare the guilty innocent for a bribe, who take away the rights of righteous people.

Drunkards


Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine,…. That can bear a great deal, and not be overcome and intoxicated with it; or that try their strength this way with others, and get the mastery and glory in it: not mighty to fight their enemies,

Drunkards cannot enter heaven see :

Gal 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
Gal 5:20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
Gal 5:21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

Isa 5:23 who declare the guilty innocent for a bribe, who take away the rights of righteous people. 

They acquit the guilty for a bribe and deny justice to the innocent.

revellings; excess in feed, nocturnal riotings in eating, drinking, dancing, singing, chambering and wantonness. The Syriac version renders it, זמרא, “lascivious singing”; and the Arabic version, “songs” which are a part of the nightly revels: and such like which are of the same nature and kind; so the apostle shuts up the account, it being too tedious to give an enumeration of all the works of the flesh; nor was it necessary, judgment may be made of the rest by these; nor might it be so proper, since the carnal heart is but the more pleased with, and irritated by, the mention of evil things:
