5-6 At that time, God-of-the-Angel-Armies will be
the beautiful crown on the head of what’s left of his people:
Energy and insights of justice to those who guide and decide,
strength and prowess to those who guard and protect.
7-8 These also, the priest and prophet, stagger from drink,
weaving, falling-down drunks,
Besotted with wine and whiskey,
can’t see straight, can’t talk sense.
Every table is covered with vomit.
They live in vomit.
New International Version
5 In that day(A) the Lord Almighty
will be a glorious(B) crown,(C)
a beautiful wreath
for the remnant(D) of his people.
6 He will be a spirit of justice(E)
to the one who sits in judgment,(F)
a source of strength
to those who turn back the battle(G) at the gate.
7 And these also stagger(H) from wine(I)
and reel(J) from beer:
Priests(K) and prophets(L) stagger from beer
and are befuddled with wine;
they reel from beer,
they stagger when seeing visions,(M)
they stumble when rendering decisions.
