(Pro 23:35 KJV) They have stricken me, shalt thou say, and I was not sick; they have beaten me, and I felt it not: when shall I awake? I will seek it yet again.
I don’t drink but I have been around people who do. I personally don’t understand the enjoyment of something that takes away your power to reason and control yourself. I have enough problems with discipline as it is.
I think this is a bit of humor. We have just read several verses that talk about all of the negative qualities of too much to drink. Then they say, “Give me another drink.” It is madness. I can remember talking to people the morning after. I remembered them laying in a gutter, covered with their own vomit. I ask them what they did last night and they answer, “I can’t remember, but I had a great time!” Pardon me if I have a different definition of “good time.”
