Woes On The Wicked

10 And ten acres of vines shall give but a quart, and thirty bushels of seed shall give but an ephah. 11 Woe unto them that rise up early to use themselves in drunkenness, and yet at night are more superfluous with wine. 12 In those companies are harps and lutes, tabrets and pipes, and wine. But they regard not the work of the LORD, and consider not the operation of his hands.
