a spirit of justice
to the one who sits in judgment,(A)
and strength
to those who repel attacks at the city gate.

Even these stagger because of wine
and stumble under the influence of beer:
priest and prophet stagger because of beer,
they are confused by wine.(B)
They stumble because of beer,
they are muddled in their visions,
they stumble in their judgments.
Indeed, all their tables are covered with vomit;
there is no place without a stench.

He will be a spirit of justice(A)
    to the one who sits in judgment,(B)
a source of strength
    to those who turn back the battle(C) at the gate.

And these also stagger(D) from wine(E)
    and reel(F) from beer:
Priests(G) and prophets(H) stagger from beer
    and are befuddled with wine;
they reel from beer,
    they stagger when seeing visions,(I)
    they stumble when rendering decisions.
All the tables are covered with vomit(J)
    and there is not a spot without filth.

And for a spirit of judgment to him that sitteth in judgment, and for strength to them that turn the battle to the gate.

But they also have erred through wine, and through strong drink are out of the way; the priest and the prophet have erred through strong drink, they are swallowed up of wine, they are out of the way through strong drink; they err in vision, they stumble in judgment.

For all tables are full of vomit and filthiness, so that there is no place clean.

For a spirit of justice to him who sits in judgment,
And for strength to those who turn back the battle at the gate.

But they also (A)have erred through wine,
And through intoxicating drink are out of the way;
(B)The priest and the prophet have erred through intoxicating drink,
They are swallowed up by wine,
They are out of the way through intoxicating drink;
They err in vision, they stumble in judgment.
For all tables are full of vomit and filth;
No place is clean.
