29 Who is wallowing in anguish? Who is full of sorrow? Who has conflicts? Who has complaints? Who has bruises and can’t remember where they came from? Who has bloodshot eyes? 30 You know who: those who stay up late finishing off the wine, those who can’t stop savoring spiced wines. 31 Look away from the enticing beauty of wine, the deep red hue; ignore how it shimmers in the cup and glides down your throat. 32 Eventually, when you least expect it, it strikes like a snake; it stings like viper venom. 33 Your vision will blur, and you’ll imagine strange things; you will say crazy, hurtful things and regret it later. 34 You will reel and stagger as if caught on a wave of seasickness, as a sailor who holds on to a mast for dear life. 35 You will say, “They slapped me, but it didn’t hurt. They beat me, and I didn’t feel a thing! Whenever I wake up from this stupor, I’ll have another drink!”
