Isaiah 28:5-7 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

In that day shall the Lord of hosts be for a crown of glory, and for a diadem of beauty unto the [a]residue of his people:

And for a spirit of judgment to him that sitteth in judgment, and for [b]strength unto them that turn away the battle to the gate.

But [c]they have erred because of wine, and are out of the way by strong drink: the Priest and the prophet have erred by strong drink: they are swallowed up with wine: they have gone astray through strong drink: they fail in vision: they stumble in judgment.

Isaiah 28:5-7 New International Version (NIV)

In that day the Lord Almighty
    will be a glorious crown,
a beautiful wreath
    for the remnant of his people.
He will be a spirit of justice
    to the one who sits in judgment,
a source of strength
    to those who turn back the battle at the gate.

And these also stagger from wine
    and reel from beer:
Priests and prophets stagger from beer
    and are befuddled with wine;
they reel from beer,
    they stagger when seeing visions,
    they stumble when rendering decisions.
