and (A)a spirit of justice to him who sits in judgement,
    and (B)strength to those who turn back the battle at the gate.
(C)These also reel with wine
    and (D)stagger with strong drink;
the priest and (E)the prophet reel with strong drink,
    they are swallowed by[a] wine,
    they stagger with strong drink,
they reel in vision,
    they stumble in giving judgement.
For all tables are full of filthy vomit,
    with no space left.

  1. Isaiah 28:7 Or confused by

He will be a spirit of justice(A)
    to the one who sits in judgment,(B)
a source of strength
    to those who turn back the battle(C) at the gate.

And these also stagger(D) from wine(E)
    and reel(F) from beer:
Priests(G) and prophets(H) stagger from beer
    and are befuddled with wine;
they reel from beer,
    they stagger when seeing visions,(I)
    they stumble when rendering decisions.
All the tables are covered with vomit(J)
    and there is not a spot without filth.
