“It turneth also euery thought into iollitie and mirth, so that a man remembreth neither sorow nor debt:”

King James Version (KJV)

1 Esdras 3:20

17. And hee said vnto them, Declare vnto vs your minde, concerning the writings. Then began the first, who had spoken of the strength of wine; 18. And he said thus: O ye men, how exceeding strong is wine! it causeth all men to erre that drinke it: 19. It maketh the minde of the king, and of the fatherlesse childe to be all one of the bondman and of the freeman, of the poore man and of the rich: 20. It turneth also euery thought into iollitie and mirth, so that a man remembreth neither sorow nor debt: 21. And it maketh euery heart rich, so that a man remembreth neither king nor gouernour, and it maketh to speake all things by talents: 22. And when they are in their cups, they forget their loue both to friends and brethren, and a litle after draw out swords: 23. But when they are from the wine, they remember not what they haue done.
