CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
Because they regard not the works of the Lord - What the Lord does in creation; in his providence; through His commands and laws; and by His Spirit.

Their banquets are accompanied by lyre and harp, by tambourine and flute, and by wine; But they do not pay attention to the deeds of the LORD, Nor do they consider the work of His hands.
