Isaiah 5:11-13 International Standard Version (ISV)

Judgment on Alcoholics

11 “How terrible it will be for those who rise at dawn
    in order to grab[a] a stiff drink,
for those who stay up late at night
    as wine inflames them!
12 They have the lyre and harp,
    the tambourine and flute,
        as well as wine at their festivals,
but they don’t respect what the Lord is doing,
    nor do they consider his actions.[b]
13 Therefore my people go into exile
    because they lack understanding;
my[c] honored men go hungry,
    and the crowd is parched with thirst.
