Habakkuk 2:14-16 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

14 But the earth will be filled
    with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord,
    as the waters cover the sea.

15 “Alas for you who make your neighbors drink,
    pouring out your wrath[a] until they are drunk,
    in order to gaze on their nakedness!”
16 You will be sated with contempt instead of glory.
    Drink, you yourself, and stagger![b]
The cup in the Lord’s right hand
    will come around to you,
    and shame will come upon your glory!

14 For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord
    as the waters cover the sea.

15 “Woe to him who gives drink 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 instead of glory.
    Now it is your turn! Drink and let your nakedness be exposed[a]!
The cup from the Lord’s right hand is coming around to you,
    and disgrace will cover your glory.
