Proverbs 23:29-35 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

29 Who has woe? Who has sorrow?
Who has contentions? Who has complaining?
Who has wounds without cause?
Who has redness of eyes?
30 Those who linger long over wine,
Those who go to [a]taste mixed wine.
31 Do not look on the wine when it is red,
When it [b]sparkles in the cup,
When it goes down smoothly;
32 At the last it bites like a serpent
And stings like a viper.
33 Your eyes will see strange things
And your [c]mind will utter perverse things.
34 And you will be like one who lies down in the [d]middle of the sea,
Or like one who lies down on the top of a [e]mast.
35 “They struck me, but I did not become [f]ill;
They beat me, but I did not know it.
When shall I awake?
I will seek [g]another drink.”
