Woe to those who call evil good
and good evil,
who put darkness for light
and light for darkness,
who put bitter for sweet
and sweet for bitter!
Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes,
and shrewd in their own sight!
Woe to those who are heroes at drinking wine,
and valiant men in mixing strong drink,
who acquit the guilty for a bribe,
and deprive the innocent of his right!
Word Study on Woe
Hebrew word: הוֹי | Transliteration howy
Of threatening / Destruction
A prolonged form of הוֹ, which means sorrow.
My comment: We must be aware of what we consider good and bad, dark and light. Everything that we consider good or bad must run it's validity through the Lord by confirming in the whole of the Scriptures. We must not take one verse out of the whole Bible and claim it. For example, the above on wine and alcohol could be read incorrectly. If wine were evil, do you think Jesus would have turned the wedding water into wine? Of course not! This Scripture is about boasting in pouring heavy amounts of alcohol and wine down one's throat. It's the same as money. Money is not bad in itself as it is necessary to live. However, the love of money is what is idolatrous (raising itself above God).
1 Timothy 4:4
For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, for it is made holy by the word of God and prayer.
Let's recall the 10 Commandments - The second commandment is "Do not make Idols"
Idols are anything that raises itself above God. Therefore ANYTHING that you hold to a higher value than God is idolatrous and therefore wrong, bad, bitter, evil etc.
