Bible Quotes in Song Listen
It is not for kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink wine; nor for princes strong drink: Lest they drink, and forget the law, and pervert the judgment of any of the afflicted. Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts. Let him drink, and forget his poverty, and remember his misery no more.
(Proverbs 31:4-7)
Bible Quotes


Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.
(Proverbs 20:1)

He that loveth pleasure shall be a poor man: he that loveth wine and oil shall not be rich.
(Proverbs 21:17)

Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh: For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags.
(Proverbs 23:20,21)

Who hath woe? who hath sorrow? who hath contentions? who hath babbling? who hath wounds without cause? who hath redness of eyes? They that tarry long at the wine; they that go to seek mixed wine. Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his colour in the cup, when it moveth itself aright. At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder. Thine eyes shall behold strange women, and thine heart shall utter perverse things. Yea, thou shalt be as he that lieth down in the midst of the sea, or as he that lieth upon the top of a mast. 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.
(Proverbs 23:29-35)

And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
(Matthew 24:49)

Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink; that continue until night, till wine inflame them! And the harp, and the viol, the tabret, and pipe, and wine, are in their feasts: but they regard not the work of the LORD, neither consider the operation of his hands. Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:
(Isaiah 5:11,12,22)

Awake, ye drunkards, and weep; and howl, all ye drinkers of wine, because of the new wine; for it is cut off from your mouth.
(Joel 1:5)

Woe unto him that giveth his neighbour drink, that puttest thy bottle to him, and makest him drunken also, that thou mayest look on their nakedness! Thou art filled with shame for glory: drink thou also, and let thy foreskin be uncovered: the cup of the LORD's right hand shall be turned unto thee, and shameful spewing shall be on thy glory.
(Habakkuk 2:15,16)

But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken;
(Luke 12:45)

Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.
(Romans 13:13)

But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.
(1 Corinthians 5:11)

Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
(1 Corinthians 6:9,10)

For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.
(1 Thessalonians 5:7)

Inspirational Quotes from Famous People

Drunkenness does not create vice; it merely brings it into view.
--Seneca quotes (Roman philosopher, mid-1st century AD)

Drunkenness is temporary suicide: the happiness that it brings is merely negative, a momentary cessation of unhappiness.
Bertrand Russell quotes (English Logician and Philosopher 1872-1970)

Alcohol is perfectly consistent in its effects upon man. Drunkenness is merely an exaggeration. A foolish man drunk becomes maudlin; a bloody man, vicious; a coarse man, vulgar.
Willa Sibert Cather quotes (American Author winner of the Pulitzer Prize, 1873-1947)

Drunkenness is a pair of spectacles to see the devil and all his works.
Proverb quotes

Drunkenness is nothing but voluntary madness.
Seneca quotes (Roman philosopher, mid-1st century AD)

The best cure for drunkenness is whilst sober, to observe a drunken person.
Chinese Proverbs quotes

What soberness conceals, Drunkenness reveals.
Proverb quotes

The proper behavior all through the holiday season is to be drunk. This drunkenness culminates on New Year's Eve, when you get so drunk you kiss the person you're married to.
P. J. O'Rourke quotes (American political commentator, Journalist, Writer and Humorist, b.1947)

Thirst is the end of drinking and sorrow is the end of drunkenness.
Irish Proverb quotes
