201 Wine is a mocker and beer a brawler; whoever is led astray by them is not wise.
201 Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.
201 Wine is a mocker, strong drink a brawler, and whoever is led astray by it is not wise.Or will not become wise
201 Wine makes you mean, beer makes you quarrelsome - a staggering drunk is not much fun.
201 Wine is a mocker, Strong drink is a brawler, And whoever is led astray by it is not wise.
201 Wine produces mockers; alcohol leads to brawls. Those led astray by drink cannot be wise.
(Read Proverbs 20:1)
It seems hard to believe that men of the greatest abilities, as well as the ignorant, should render themselves fools and madmen, merely for the taste or excitement produced by strong liquors.
