Isaiah 5:22


to those who are mighty to drink wine, and champions at mixing strong drink.
Isaiah 5:22


Isaiah 5 [20.] 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 prudent in their own sight!
Woe to those who are mighty to drink wine,
    and champions at mixing strong drink;
who acquit the guilty for a bribe,
    but deny justice for the innocent!
Therefore as the tongue of fire devours the stubble,
    and as the dry grass sinks down in the flame,
    so their root shall be as rottenness,
    and their blossom shall go up as dust;
because they have rejected the law of Yahweh of Armies,
    and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.
