1 Thessalonians 5:7

They that be drunken are drunken in the night (oi mequskomenoi nukto mequousin). No need of "be" here, they that are drunken. No real difference in meaning between mequskw and mequw, to be drunk, except that mequskw (inceptive verb in -skw) means to get drunk. Night (nukto, genitive by night) is the favourite time for drunken revelries.
