Evil drunk wife (Sir 26:7-26:9)

“A bad wife is

Like a chafing yoke.

Taking hold of her is

Like grasping a scorpion.

A drunken wife

Arouses great anger.

She cannot hide her shame.

The haughty stare betrays

An unchaste wife.

Her eyelids give her away.”

Oh, oh, we are back to the evil bad wife. She is like a chafing yoke, which was put on oxen. Holding her was like trying to grab a scorpion. Now she is also a drunkard, as if no husbands were ever drunkards. This over indulging wife brings anger and shame. You can tell that she is an unchaste wife by her eyelids. Watch out for those eyelids!
