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.

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.
