Holman Christian Standard (CSB) New International Version (NIV)
29 Who has woe? Who has sorrow? Who has conflicts? Who has complaints? Who has wounds for no reason? Who has red eyes? 29 Who has woe? Who has sorrow? Who has strife? Who has complaints? Who has needless bruises? Who has bloodshot eyes?
30 Those who linger over wine, those who go looking for mixed wine. 30 Those who linger over wine, who go to sample bowls of mixed wine.
31 Don't gaze at wine when it is red, when it gleams in the cup and goes down smoothly. 31 Do not gaze at wine when it is red, when it sparkles in the cup, when it goes down smoothly!
32 In the end it bites like a snake and stings like a viper. 32 In the end it bites like a snake and poisons like a viper.
33 Your eyes will see strange things, and you will say absurd things. 33 Your eyes will see strange sights and your mind imagine confusing things.
34 You'll be like someone sleeping out at sea or lying down on the top of a ship's mast. 34 You will be like one sleeping on the high seas, lying on top of the rigging.
35 "They struck me, but I feel no pain! They beat me, but I didn't know it! When will I wake up? I'll look for another [drink]." 35 "They hit me," you will say, "but I'm not hurt! They beat me, but I don't feel it! When will I wake up so I can find another drink?"
