...(1)And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, (2)Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When either man or woman shall separate themselves to vow a vow of a Nazarite, to separate themselves unto the LORD: (3)He shall separate from wine and strong drink, and shall drink no vinegar of wine, or vinegar of strong drink, neither shall he drink any liquor of grapes, nor eat moist grapes, or dried.
(4)All the days of his separation shall he eat nothing that is made of the vine tree, from the kernels even to the husk. (5)All the days of the vow of his separation there shall no rasor come upon his head: until the days be fulfilled, in the which he separateth unto the LORD, he shall be holy, shall let the locks of the hair of his head grow. (6)All the days that he separateth unto the LORD he shall come at no dead body. (7)He shall not make himself unclean for his father, or for his mother, for his brother, or for his sister, when they die: because the consecration of his God upon his head.

...(22)Thou shalt truly tithe all the increase of thy seed, that the field bringeth forth year by year. (23)And thou shalt eat before the LORD thy God, in the place which he shall choose to place his name there, the tithe of thy corn, of thy wine, and of thine oil, and the firstlings of thy herds and of thy flocks; that thou mayest learn to fear the LORD thy God always.
(24)And if the way be too long for thee, so that thou art not able to carry it; or if the place be too far from thee, which the LORD thy God shall choose to set his name there, when the LORD thy God hath blessed thee: (25)Then shalt thou turn it into money, and bind up the money in thine hand, and shalt go unto the place which the LORD thy God shall choose: (26)And thou shalt bestow that money for whatsoever thy soul lusteth after, for oxen, or for sheep, or for wine, or for strong drink, or for whatsoever thy soul desireth: and thou shalt eat there before the LORD thy God, and thou shalt rejoice, thou, and thine household, (27)And the Levite that is within thy gates; thou shalt not forsake him; for he hath no part nor inheritance with thee.
(28)At the end of three years thou shalt bring forth all the tithe of thine increase the same year, and shalt lay it up within thy gates: (29)And the Levite, (because he hath no part nor inheritance with thee,) and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, which are within thy gates, shall come, and shall eat and be satisfied; that the LORD thy God may bless thee in all the work of thine hand which thou doest...

(2)And Moses called unto all Israel, and said unto them, Ye have seen all that the LORD did before your eyes in the land of Egypt unto Pharaoh, and unto all his servants, and unto all his land; (3)The great temptations which thine eyes have seen, the signs, and those great miracles: (4)Yet the LORD hath not given you an heart to perceive, and eyes to see, and ears to hear, unto this day. (5)And I have led you forty years in the wilderness: your clothes are not waxen old upon you, and thy shoe is not waxen old upon thy foot. (6)Ye have not eaten bread, neither have ye drunk wine or strong drink: that ye might know that I am the LORD your God.
(7)And when ye came unto this place, Sihon the king of Heshbon, and Og the king of Bashan, came out against us unto battle, and we smote them: (8)And we took their land, and gave it for an inheritance unto the Reubenites, and to the Gadites, and to the half tribe of Manasseh.
(9)Keep therefore the words of this covenant, and do them, that ye may prosper in all that ye do...
...(1)And the children of Israel did evil again in the sight of the LORD; and the LORD delivered them into the hand of the Philistines forty years.
(2)And there was a certain man of Zorah, of the family of the Danites, whose name was Manoah; and his wife was barren, and bare not. (3)And the angel of the LORD appeared unto the woman, and said unto her, Behold now, thou art barren, and bearest not: but thou shalt conceive, and bear a son. (4)Now therefore beware, I pray thee, and drink not wine nor strong drink, and eat not any unclean thing: (5)For, lo, thou shalt conceive, and bear a son; and no rasor shall come on his head: for the child shall be a Nazarite unto God from the womb: and he shall begin to deliver Israel out of the hand of the Philistines.
(6)Then the woman came and told her husband, saying, A man of God came unto me, and his countenance was like the countenance of an angel of God, very terrible: but I asked him not whence he was, neither told he me his name: (7)But he said unto me, Behold, thou shalt conceive, and bear a son; and now drink no wine nor strong drink, neither eat any unclean thing: for the child shall be a Nazarite to God from the womb to the day of his death.
(8)Then Manoah intreated the LORD, and said, O my Lord, let the man of God which thou didst send come again unto us, and teach us what we shall do unto the child that shall be born.
(9)And God hearkened to the voice of Manoah; and the angel of God came again unto the woman as she sat in the field: but Manoah her husband was not with her. (10)And the woman made haste, and ran, and shewed her husband, and said unto him, Behold, the man hath appeared unto me, that came unto me the other day. (11)And Manoah arose, and went after his wife, and came to the man, and said unto him, Art thou the man that spakest unto the woman? And he said, I am.
(12)And Manoah said, Now let thy words come to pass. How shall we order the child, and how shall we do unto him? (13)And the angel of the LORD said unto Manoah, Of all that I said unto the woman let her beware. (14)She may not eat of any thing that cometh of the vine, neither let her drink wine or strong drink, nor eat any unclean thing: all that I commanded her let her observe.
(15)And Manoah said unto the angel of the LORD, I pray thee, let us detain thee, until we shall have made ready a kid for thee...
I Samuel 1:9-20
...(9)So Hannah rose up after they had eaten in Shiloh, and after they had drunk. Now Eli the priest sat upon a seat by a post of the temple of the LORD. (10)And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed unto the LORD, and wept sore. (11)And she vowed a vow, and said, O LORD of hosts, if thou wilt indeed look on the affliction of thine handmaid, and remember me, and not forget thine handmaid, but wilt give unto thine handmaid a man child, then I will give him unto the LORD all the days of his life, and there shall no rasor come upon his head.
(12)And it came to pass, as she continued praying before the LORD, that Eli marked her mouth. (13)Now Hannah, she spake in her heart; only her lips moved, but her voice was not heard: therefore Eli thought she had been drunken. (14)And Eli said unto her, How long wilt thou be drunken? put away thy wine from thee. (15)And Hannah answered and said, No, my lord, I am a woman of a sorrowful spirit: I have drunk neither wine nor strong drink, but have poured out my soul before the LORD. (16)Count not thine handmaid for a daughter of Belial: for out of the abundance of my complaint and grief have I spoken hitherto.
(17)Then Eli answered and said, Go in peace: and the God of Israel grant thee thy petition that thou hast asked of him. (18)And she said, Let thine handmaid find grace in thy sight. So the woman went her way, and did eat, and her countenance was no more sad. (19)And they rose up in the morning early, and worshipped before the LORD, and returned, and came to their house to Ramah: and Elkanah knew Hannah his wife; and the LORD remembered her.
(20)Wherefore it came to pass, when the time was come about after Hannah had conceived, that she bare a son, and called his name Samuel, saying, Because I have asked him of the LORD...
...Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise...
...(1)The words of king Lemuel, the prophecy that his mother taught him.
(2)What, my son? and what, the son of my womb? and what, the son of my vows?
(3)Give not thy strength unto women, nor thy ways to that which destroyeth kings. (4)It is not for kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink wine; nor for princes strong drink: (5)Lest they drink, and forget the law, and pervert the judgment of any of the afflicted.
(6)Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts. (7)Let him drink, and forget his poverty, and remember his misery no more...
...(8)Woe unto them that join house to house, that lay field to field, till there be no place, that they may be placed alone in the midst of the earth! (9)In mine ears said the LORD of hosts, Of a truth many houses shall be desolate, even great and fair, without inhabitant. (10)Yea, ten acres of vineyard shall yield one bath, and the seed of an homer shall yield an ephah.
(11)Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink; that continue until night, till wine inflame them! (12)And the harp, and the viol, the tabret, and pipe, and wine, are in their feasts: but they regard not the work of the LORD, neither consider the operation of his hands.
(13)Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst.
(14)Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it. (15)And the mean man shall be brought down, and the mighty man shall be humbled, and the eyes of the lofty shall be humbled: (16)But the LORD of hosts shall be exalted in judgment, and God that is holy shall be sanctified in righteousness.
(17)Then shall the lambs feed after their manner, and the waste places of the fat ones shall strangers eat.
(18)Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were with a cart rope: (19)That say, Let him make speed, and hasten his work, that we may see it: and let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw nigh and come, that we may know it!
(20)Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
(21)Woe unto wise that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!
(22)Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: (23)Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!
(24)Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.
(25)Therefore is the anger of the LORD kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills did tremble, and their carcases torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand stretched out still...
...(4)The earth mourneth and fadeth away, the world languisheth and fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish. (5)The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. (6)Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left. (7)The new wine mourneth, the vine languisheth, all the merryhearted do sigh. (8)The mirth of tabrets ceaseth, the noise of them that rejoice endeth, the joy of the harp ceaseth. (9)They shall not drink wine with a song; strong drink shall be bitter to them that drink it. (10)The city of confusion is broken down: every house is shut up, that no man may come in.
(11)There is a crying for wine in the streets; all joy is darkened, the mirth of the land is gone.
(12)In the city is left desolation, and the gate is smitten with destruction. (13)When thus it shall be in the midst of the land among the people, there shall be as the shaking of an olive tree, and as the gleaning grapes when the vintage is done. (14)They shall lift up their voice, they shall sing for the majesty of the LORD, they shall cry aloud from the sea.
(15)Wherefore glorify ye the LORD in the fires, even the name of the LORD God of Israel in the isles of the sea...
...(5)In that day shall the LORD of hosts be for a crown of glory, and for a diadem of beauty, unto the residue of his people, (6)And for a spirit of judgment to him that sitteth in judgment, and for strength to them that turn the battle to the gate.
(7)But they also have erred through wine, and through strong drink are out of the way; the priest and the prophet have erred through strong drink, they are swallowed up of wine, they are out of the way through strong drink; they err in vision, they stumble in judgment.
(8)For all tables are full of vomit and filthiness, so that there is no place clean.
(9)Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. (10)For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little: (11)For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people.
(12)To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear...
...(5)Moreover the multitude of thy strangers shall be like small dust, and the multitude of the terrible ones shall be as chaff that passeth away: yea, it shall be at an instant suddenly. (6)Thou shalt be visited of the LORD of hosts with thunder, and with earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire. (7)And the multitude of all the nations that fight against Ariel, even all that fight against her and her munition, and that distress her, shall be as a dream of a night vision.
(8)It shall even be as when an hungry man dreameth, and, behold, he eateth; but he awaketh, and his soul is empty: or as when a thirsty man dreameth, and, behold, he drinketh; but he awaketh, and, behold, he is faint, and his soul hath appetite: so shall the multitude of all the nations be, that fight against mount Zion.
(9)Stay yourselves, and wonder; cry ye out, and cry: they are drunken, but not with wine; they stagger, but not with strong drink. (10)For the LORD hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he covered.
(11)And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed: (12)And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned. (13)Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men: (14)Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid...
...(1)Thus saith the LORD, Keep ye judgment, and do justice: for my salvation is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed. (2)Blessed is the man that doeth this, and the son of man that layeth hold on it; that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil.
(3)Neither let the son of the stranger, that hath joined himself to the LORD, speak, saying, The LORD hath utterly separated me from his people: neither let the eunuch say, Behold, I am a dry tree. (4)For thus saith the LORD unto the eunuchs that keep my sabbaths, and choose the things that please me, and take hold of my covenant; (5)Even unto them will I give in mine house and within my walls a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off.
(6)Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the LORD, to serve him, and to love the name of the LORD, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant; (7)Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.
(8)The Lord GOD which gathereth the outcasts of Israel saith, Yet will I gather others to him, beside those that are gathered unto him.
(9)All ye beasts of the field, come to devour, yea, all ye beasts in the forest. (10)His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber. (11)Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter.
(12)Come ye say they, I will fetch wine, and we will fill ourselves with strong drink; and to morrow shall be as this day, and much more abundant...
...(7)O thou that art named the house of Jacob, is the spirit of the LORD straitened? are these his doings? do not my words do good to him that walketh uprightly? (8)Even of late my people is risen up as an enemy: ye pull off the robe with the garment from them that pass by securely as men averse from war. (9)The women of my people have ye cast out from their pleasant houses; from their children have ye taken away my glory for ever.
(10)Arise ye, and depart; for this is not your rest: because it is polluted, it shall destroy you, even with a sore destruction.
(11)If a man walking in the spirit and falsehood do lie, saying, I will prophesy unto thee of wine and of strong drink; he shall even be the prophet of this people. (12)I will surely assemble, O Jacob, all of thee; I will surely gather the remnant of Israel; I will put them together as the sheep of Bozrah, as the flock in the midst of their fold: they shall make great noise by reason of the multitude of men.
(13)The breaker is come up before them: they have broken up, and have passed through the gate, and are gone out by it: and their king shall pass before them, and the LORD on the head of them...
...(5)There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth. (6)And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless. (7)And they had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren, and they both were now well stricken in years.
(8)And it came to pass, that while he executed the priest's office before God in the order of his course, (9)According to the custom of the priest's office, his lot was to burn incense when he went into the temple of the Lord. (10)And the whole multitude of the people were praying without at the time of incense. (11)And there appeared unto him an angel of the Lord standing on the right side of the altar of incense.
(12)And when Zacharias saw, he was troubled, and fear fell upon him.
(13)But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John. (14)And thou shalt have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice at his birth. (15)For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother's womb. (16)And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God. (17)And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.
(18)And Zacharias said unto the angel, Whereby shall I know this? for I am an old man, and my wife well stricken in years. (19)And the angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that stand in the presence of God; and am sent to speak unto thee, and to shew thee these glad tidings. (20)And, behold, thou shalt be dumb, and not able to speak, until the day that these things shall be performed, because thou believest not my words, which shall be fulfilled in their season...
