15 Ah! you who give your neighbors
    the cup of your wrath to drink, and make them drunk,
    until their nakedness is seen!(A)
16 You are filled with shame instead of glory;
    drink, you too, and stagger!
The cup from the Lord’s right hand shall come around to you,
    and utter shame shall cover your glory.

15 “Woe to him who gives drink(A) to his neighbors,
    pouring it from the wineskin till they are drunk,
    so that he can gaze on their naked bodies!
16 You will be filled with shame(B) instead of glory.(C)
    Now it is your turn! Drink(D) and let your nakedness be exposed[a]!(E)
The cup(F) from the Lord’s right hand is coming around to you,
    and disgrace will cover your glory.
