Proverbs 23:33-34

Context

23:33 Your eyes will see strange things, 1 

and your mind will speak perverse things.

23:34 And you will be like one who lies down in the midst 2  of the sea,

and like one who lies down on the top of the rigging. 3 

1 tn The feminine plural of זָר (zar, “strange things”) refers to the trouble one has in seeing and speaking when drunk.

2 tn Heb “heart.” The idiom here means “middle”; KJV “in the midst.”

3 sn The point of these similes is to compare being drunk with being seasick. One who tries to sleep when at sea, or even worse, when up on the ropes of the mast, will be tossed back and forth.
