31 Do not look at wine when it is red, when it sparkles 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!

34 You will be like one who lies down in the midst of the sea, like one who lies on the top of a mast. 34 You will be like one sleeping on the high seas, lying on top of the rigging.
35 "They struck me," you will say, "but I was not hurt; they beat me, but I did not feel it. When shall I awake? I will seek 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?"
