Isaiah 5:11-13 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

11 [a]Ah! Those who rise early in the morning
    in pursuit of strong drink,
lingering late
    inflamed by wine,
12 Banqueting on wine with harp and lyre,
    timbrel and flute,
But the deed of the Lord they do not regard,
    the work of his hands they do not see!
13 Therefore my people go into exile
    for lack of understanding,
Its nobles starving,
    its masses parched with thirst.

Footnotes:

  1. 5:11–13 An oracle against debauchery and indifference. Strong drink: the Hebrew word shekar means either beer or a type of wine, perhaps date wine, not distilled liquor.

Isaiah 5:11-13 New International Version (NIV)

11 Woe to those who rise early in the morning
    to run after their drinks,
who stay up late at night
    till they are inflamed with wine.
12 They have harps and lyres at their banquets,
    pipes and timbrels and wine,
but they have no regard for the deeds of the Lord,
    no respect for the work of his hands.
13 Therefore my people will go into exile
    for lack of understanding;
those of high rank will die of hunger
    and the common people will be parched with thirst.
