Isaiah 28:6-8 International Standard Version (ISV)

and 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.

These people also[a] stagger from wine
    and reel from strong drink.
Priests and prophets stagger from strong drink;
    they’re drunk from[b] wine;
they reel from strong drink,
    waver when seeing visions,
        and stumble when rendering decisions.
For all the tables are covered in vomit and filth,
    with no clean[c] 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.
