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 neighbours 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!
