||New International Version (NIV)
8 Drinking was by flagons, without restraint; for the king had given orders to all the officials of his palace to do as each one desired.
8 By the king's command each guest was allowed to drink in his own way, for the king instructed all the wine stewards to serve each man what he wished.
