1 Samuel 25:36

Wine is a mocker, strong drink a brawler, And whoever is intoxicated by it is not wise.
Do not be with heavy drinkers of wine, Or with gluttonous eaters of meat;
Woe to those who rise early in the morning that they may pursue strong drink, Who stay up late in the evening that wine may inflame them!
And these also reel with wine and stagger from strong drink: The priest and the prophet reel with strong drink, They are confused by wine, they stagger from strong drink; They reel while having visions, They totter when rendering judgment.
