Then he will give ·wisdom [a spirit of justice/judgment] to ·the judges who must decide cases [L those who sit in judgment]
    and strength to those who battle at the city gate.
But now those leaders ·are drunk [reel] with wine;
    they ·stumble [stagger] from drinking too much ·beer [T strong drink; C alcoholic beverage made from grain].
The priests and prophets ·are drunk [stagger] with ·beer [T strong drink]
    and are ·filled with [swallowed by; or confused because of] wine.
They stumble from too much ·beer [T strong drink].
    ·The prophets [L They] ·are drunk [stagger] when they see their visions;
    ·the judges [they] stumble ·when they make their decisions [in judgment].
Every table is covered with vomit,
    so there is not a clean place anywhere.

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.
