Isaiah 28:6-8 English Standard Version Anglicised (ESVUK)

and a spirit of justice to him who sits in judgement,
    and strength to those who turn back the battle at the gate.
These also reel with wine
    and stagger with strong drink;
the priest and the prophet reel with strong drink,
    they are swallowed by[a] wine,
    they stagger with strong drink,
they reel in vision,
    they stumble in giving judgement.
For all tables are full of filthy vomit,
    with no space left.

Isaiah 28:6-8 New International Version (NIV)

He will be a spirit of justice
    to the one who sits in judgment,
a source of strength
    to those who turn back the battle at the gate.

And these also stagger from wine
    and reel from beer:
Priests and prophets stagger from beer
    and are befuddled with wine;
they reel from beer,
    they stagger when seeing visions,
    they stumble when rendering decisions.
All the tables are covered with vomit
    and there is not a spot without filth.
