Proverbs 23:19-21, 23:29-24:2


19 Hear, my child, and be wise,
   and direct your mind in the way.
20 Do not be among winebibbers,
   or among gluttonous eaters of meat;
21 for the drunkard and the glutton will come to poverty,
   and drowsiness will clothe them with rags.


29 Who has woe? Who has sorrow?
   Who has strife? Who has complaining?
Who has wounds without cause?
   Who has redness of eyes?
30 Those who linger late over wine,
   those who keep trying mixed wines.
31 Do not look at wine when it is red,
   when it sparkles in the cup
   and goes down smoothly.
32 At the last it bites like a serpent,
   and stings like an adder.
33 Your eyes will see strange things,
   and your mind utter perverse things.
34 You will be like one who lies down in the midst of the sea,
   like one who lies on the top of a mast.*
35 ‘They struck me’, you will say,* ‘but I was not hurt;
   they beat me, but I did not feel it.
When shall I awake?
   I will seek another drink.’

24Do not envy the wicked,
   nor desire to be with them;
2 for their minds devise violence,
   and their lips talk of mischief.
