A reproach against heavy drinking (Isa 5:22-5:22)

“Woe to you

Who are heroes

At drinking wine!

Woe to you

Who are valiant

At mixing strong drink!”

Isaiah was against those who pretend to be drinking heroes. They seem to be like those who say that they can drink everyone under the table. Some are very good with mixed drinks, like a bartender.
