14 Indeed, the earth will be filled
    with knowledge of the glory of the Lord,
        as water fills[a] the sea.”

Judgment on the Violent

15 “Woe to the one who supplies his neighbor with a drink!
    You are forcing your bottle[b] on him,[c]
        making him drunk so you can see them naked.
16 You are filled with dishonor instead of glory.
    So go ahead,[d] drink and be naked!
    The Lord[e] will turn against you,
    and utter disgrace will debase your reputation.[f]
