Definitions for Job 1 :13

Clarke's Commentary on Job 1 :13

There was a day - The first day of the week, says the Targum. It no doubt refers to one of those birthday festivals mentioned before.

Barnes's Commentary on Job 1 :13

And there was a day - That is, on the day on which the regular turn came for the banquet to be held in the house of the older brother; compare the notes at Job 1:4.

And drinking wine - This circumstance is omitted in Job 1:4. It shows that wine was regarded as an essential part of the banquet, and it was from its use that Job apprehended the unhappy results referred to in Job 1:5.
