Drunkenness being a bad thing
Unknown if this section is consultant checked
Genesis 9:20-21
Noah looked after grape bushes for food. Nobody else did like that. Later he drank a little bit of wine, he got drunk, he took off his clothes, he slept in his tent naked. [In the beginning to stay naked used to be OK. Adam and Eve did wrong, from then on to stay naked is really shameful, because of desiring badly. God himself made clothes for those two. (Genesis 3:7,21)]
Genesis 19:30-38
[Lot's two daughters got him drunk in order to sleep with him. In that way they became pregnant from their own father. The oldest had a son called Moab. The youngest had a son called Ben-Ammi. A long time afterwards, Moab's and Ben-Ammi's mobs became enemies of God's people.]
Deuteronomy 21:18-21
Perhaps a man's son is stubborn and rebellious. He won't listen to his mother and father, when they hit him still he won't listen. His mother and father should take him to the bosses of their town. They should tell them, “This son of ours is stubborn and rebellious, he won't listen to us. He wastes all his money and is a drunken fellow.” Then the bosses in that town should throw stones at him until he is dead. In this way you will stop others from doing that bad thing. Everyone who hears will be afraid to do the sorts of things which that young man did.
Proverbs 20:1
That drinking too much alcohol makes you talk loud and stupid. It is really stupid to get drunk.
Proverbs 23:19-21
Listen, son! Think properly and live in the proper way. Don't join with others who are drinkers of lots of wine and those who are greedy for food. People like that are making themselves poor.
Proverbs 23:29-35
Who is really upset? Who is unhappy? Who is always fighting? Who is always growling? Who has sores after falling accidentally? Who has red eyes? Those who are always drinking, testing different kinds of wine. That wine is good to look at, and really sweet to taste. Don't ever trust it. When a poisonous snake bites you, you get really sick, it is very painful when a death adder bites you, in that same way after drinking wine you will get really sick. You will see frightening things that aren't there and you will talk in a stupid way. You all know about the sailing ships in the sea, the post that holds the sail is really tall. That post moves in the wind in every direction. In that same way that drunk person walks in a staggering way. And he will say, “They hit me but I didn't feel it. I didn't know it when they hit me. When will I wake up to have another drink?”
Isaiah 5:11-12
You get up early in the morning to drink wine, then you keep on drinking during the night...You should be thinking about God, but you're not! You are ignorant of what he is doing. He says to you, “I will hit you hard, it's impossible for you to run away and hide.”
Romans 13:13
Let us live the proper way, so that all can see clearly that we are without fault. Don't do anything shameful, don't get drunk, don't over-eat, don't sleep with others' spouses, don't have sex with others, don't fight, don't be jealous with others.
1 Corinthians 5:11
...Some people call themselves Christians, but they are still doing wrong. Maybe they are always looking for illegal sex, maybe they are greedy, maybe they worship carved representations of spirit beings, maybe they are false criticisers, maybe drunken fellows, maybe thieves. Don't join with people that do those sorts of things, truly don't eat with them.
1 Corinthians 6:9-11
Truly you know evil-doers will not get into God's country. Don't trick yourselves. Some people are always looking for illegal sex, some worship carved representations of spirit beings, some sleep with other people's spouses, some men have sex with each other, some are thieves, some are greedy, some are drunks, some are false criticisers, some steal with violence. The ones who do those sorts of things will not get into God's country. Some of you used to be like that, now you're different. The Lord Jesus Christ and God's Spirit have separated you from evil, they have chosen you for God, they have joined you in a good way with God.
Galatians 5:21
...They get drunk, when they are drunk, they do other bad things like those...
Ephesians 5:18
Don't get drunk with wine, it will make you silly, you will do bad things without thinking. Better, give yourselves to the Holy Spirit, so that he can steer you in a proper way.
1 Timothy 3:2-3
A Christian leader must stay without fault. He must be a really dependable person, he must be a boss for himself...not a drunkard...not a fighter...
Titus 1:7
A Christian leader...truly he must not be an arrogant person, not quick-tempered, not a drunkard, not a fighter, not greedy for money.
1 Peter 4:3
From now on until you die you must continually do from God's word, not from people's words, not from your self-centred spirit. The ones that don't know about God, still they want to do all kinds of bad things. Before when you were not Christians, you too were bad, like those ones. You were shameless, always looking for illegal sex, you were drunkards, you drank wine, ate food until you were full, then you had sex. You used to worship carved representations of spirit beings. Things like these are really bad!
