and (A)a spirit of justice to him who sits in judgment,
    and (B)strength to those who turn back the battle at the gate.

(C)These also reel with wine
    and (D)stagger with strong drink;
the priest and (E)the prophet reel with strong drink,
    they are swallowed by[a] wine,
    they stagger with strong drink,
they reel in vision,
    they stumble in giving judgment.
For all tables are full of filthy vomit,
    with no space left.
