Isaiah 22:12-13 ” The Lord, the Lord Almighty, called you on that day to weep and to wail, to tear out your hair and put on sackcloth. But see, there is joy and revelry, slaughtering of cattle and killing of sheep, eating of meat and drinking of wine! ‘Let us eat and drink,’ you say, ‘for tomorrow we die!’ “

Chapter 22 in Isaiah is a prophecy against the City of Jerusalem. They were doing things on their own, not once looking to God for help and/or guidance. And so in the Scripture above we see God calling them to repentance, but instead of turning from their sinful ways , they take on a careless and negligent attitude of ‘Let’s eat, drink, and be merry!’ To God it was a dereliction of what they should be doing… showing just how selfish they were and how very little they cared about themselves.
