||Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever
is deceived thereby is not wise.
||Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh:
||Who hath woe? who hath sorrow? who hath contentions? who

||Thine eyes shall behold strange women, and thine heart

||They have stricken me, shalt thou say, and I was not
