5-6 At that time, God-of-the-Angel-Armies will be
the beautiful crown on the head of what’s left of his people:
Energy and insights of justice to those who guide and decide,
strength and prowess to those who guard and protect.
7-8 These also, the priest and prophet, stagger from drink,
weaving, falling-down drunks,
Besotted with wine and whiskey,
can’t see straight, can’t talk sense.
Every table is covered with vomit.
They live in vomit.
New International Version
7 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.
8 All the tables are covered with vomit(J)
and there is not a spot without filth.
King James Version
6 And for a spirit of judgment to him that sitteth in judgment, and for strength to them that turn the battle to the gate.
7 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.
8 For all tables are full of vomit and filthiness, so that there is no place clean.Read full chapter
