And for a spirit of judgment To him who is sitting in the judgment, And for might [to] those turning back the battle to the gate.

And even these through wine have erred, And through strong drink have wandered, Priest and prophet erred through strong drink, They have been swallowed up of the wine, They wandered because of the strong drink, They have erred in seeing, They have stumbled judicially.

For all tables have been full of vomit, Filth -- without place!

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.
