Judges 9:13; Ecclesiastes 10:19; Proverbs 31:6–7

13 But the vine said to them, Shall I leave my wine that bcheers God and men and go hold sway over the trees?


19  Bread is made for laughter,

and bwine gladdens life,

and cmoney answers everything.


Give strong drink to the one who nis perishing,

and wine to othose in bitter distress;1

plet them drink and forget their poverty

and remember their misery no more.
