Isaiah 28:6-8 New International Reader's Version (NIRV)

He will help those
    who are fair when they judge.
He will give strength to those
    who turn back their enemies at the city gate.

Israel’s leaders are drunk from wine.
    They can’t walk straight.
They are drunk from beer.
    They are unsteady on their feet.
Priests and prophets drink beer.
    They can’t walk straight.
    They are mixed up from drinking too much wine.
They drink too much beer.
    They are unsteady on their feet.
The prophets see visions but don’t really understand them.
    The priests aren’t able to make good decisions.
They throw up. All the tables are covered
    with the mess they’ve made.
There isn’t one spot on the tables
    that isn’t smelly and dirty.

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.
