Leviticus 10:11

Leviticus 10:11

And that ye may teach the children of Israel all the
statutes
Laws, precepts, ordinances, moral, ceremonial, and judicial, which was the business of the priests to do, ( Malachi 2:7 ) but one inebriated with liquor would be incapable of giving instructions about any of those things:

which the Lord hath spoken unto them by the hand of Moses:
particularly those delivered and recorded in ( Exodus 20:1-26 ) ( 22:1-23:33 ) and as not the priests, so neither any other Israelite might instruct {s}, nor indeed would be capable of instructing others when in liquor; and therefore excessive drinking, as it should be carefully avoided by all men, so more especially by those who by their office are teachers of others; see ( Proverbs 31:4 Proverbs 31:5 ) .
