    Love your stuff...

    ...but listen...Isaiah 5:11 goes like this:

    "Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink; that continue until night, till wine inflame them!"

    Why not print the rest? It is all silly. You don't need to rip things out of context to show it. It just makes you as ingenuous as those trying to scam people into believing.

    Thanks Lars. And you're right, I should have quoted the whole verse. I usually try to include as much of the quote as is necessary to show the meaning of the verse or passage, but this time I couldn't resist truncating it for humorous effect.

    I'll revise the post to include the whole verse as you suggest.
