    SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:21

    ¶ Aborrecí, abominé vuestras solemnidades, y no me darán buen olor vuestras asambleas.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Amos 5:21

    Verse 21. I
    hate, I despise your feast days] I abominate those sacrificial festivals where there is no piety, and I despise them because they pretend to be what they are not. This may refer to the three annual festivals which were still observed in a certain way among the Israelites.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 21. I
    hate, I despise your feast days , etc.] Kimchi thinks this is said, and what follows, with respect to the kingdom of the house of Judah, which kept the feast the Lord commanded; but it is not necessary so to understand it; for doubtless the ten tribes imitated the worship at Jerusalem, and kept the feasts as the Jews did there, in the observance of which they trusted; but the Lord rejects their vain confidence, and lets them know that these were no ways acceptable to him; and were so far from atoning for their sins, that they were hated, abhorred, and despised by him, being observed in such a manner and with such a view as they were; and I will not smell in your solemn assemblies ; a sweet savour of rest, as in ( Genesis 8:21); take no pleasure in their duties and services performed, in their solemn assemblies convened together for religious purposes, nor accept of them; but, on the contrary, dislike and abhor them; (see Isaiah 1:11-14).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 18-27 - Woe unto those that desire the
    day of the Lord's judgments, that wis for times of war and confusion; as some who long for changes, hoping to rise upon the ruins of their country! but this should be so great desolation, that nobody could gain by it. The day of the Lord will be dark, dismal, gloomy day to all impenitent sinners. When God makes day dark, all the world cannot make it light. Those who are no reformed by the judgments of God, will be pursued by them; if the escape one, another stands ready to seize them. A pretence of piety i double iniquity, and so it will be found. The people of Israel copie the crimes of their forefathers. The law of worshipping the Lord ou God, is, Him only we must serve. Professors thrive so little, becaus they have little or no communion with God in their duties. They wer led captive by Satan into idolatry, therefore God caused them to go into captivity among idolaters __________________________________________________________________
