Bingeing (New Testament)

Acts 2 : 14 - But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and spoke forth to them, saying, You men of Judaea, and all you that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known to you, and give ear to my words. For these are not drunk, as you suppose; seeing it is but the third hour of the day. but this is that which has been spoken through the prophet Joel: And it shall be in the last days, says God, I will pour forth of My Spirit upon all flesh: And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, And your young men shall see visions, And your old men shall dream dreams: Yes and on My servants and on My handmaidens in those days Will I pour forth of My Spirit; and they shall prophesy

Ephesians 5 : 18 - And be not drunk with wine, wherein is riot, but be filled with the Spirit;

Bingeing (Old Testament)

Genesis 9 : 18 - And the sons of Noah, that went forth from the ark, were Shem, and Ham, and Japheth: and Ham is the father of Canaan. These three were the sons of Noah: and of these was the whole earth overspread. And Noah began to be a husbandman, and planted a vineyard: and he drank of the wine, and was drunk. And he was uncovered within his tent. And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without. And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father. And their faces were backward, and they saw not their father's nakedness. And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his youngest son had done unto him. And he said, Cursed be Canaan; A servant of servants shall he be to his brethren.

Genesis 19 : 30 - And Lot went up out of Zoar, and dwelt in the mountain, and his two daughters with him; for he feared to dwell in Zoar: and he dwelt in a cave, he and his two daughters. And the first-born said to the younger, Our father is old, and there is not a man in the earth to come in to us after the manner of all the earth: come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father. And they made their father drink wine that night: and the first-born went in, and lay with her father; and he knew not when she lay down, nor when she arose. And it came to pass on the morrow, that the first-born said to the younger, Behold, I lay yesternight with my father: let us make him drink wine this night also; and go you in, and lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father. And they made their father drink wine that night also: and the younger arose, and lay with him; and he knew not when she lay down, nor when she arose. Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father. And the first-born bore a son, and called his name Moab: the same is the father of the Moabites to this day. And the younger, she also bore a son, and called his name Ben-ammi: the same is the father of the children of Ammon to this day.

1 Kings 16 : 8 - In the twenty and sixth year of Asa king of Judah began Elah the son of Baasha to reign over Israel in Tirzah, and reigned two years. And his servant Zimri, captain of half his chariots, conspired against him. Now he was in Tirzah, drinking himself drunk in the house of Arza, who was over the household in Tirzah: and Zimri went in and smote him, and killed him, in the twenty and seventh year of Asa king of Judah, and reigned in his stead. And it came to pass, when he began to reign, as soon as he sat on his throne, that he smote all the house of Baasha: he left him not a single man-child, neither of his kinsfolks, nor of his friends. Thus did Zimri destroy all the house of Baasha, according to the word of Jehovah, which he spoke against Baasha by Jehu the prophet, for all the sins of Baasha, and the sins of Elah his son, which they sinned, and wherewith they made Israel to sin, to provoke Jehovah, the God of Israel, to anger with their vanities. ( 14 ) Now the rest of the acts of Elah, and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?

1 Kings 20 : 15 - Then he mustered the young men of the princes of the provinces, and they were two hundred and thirty-two: and after them he mustered all the people, even all the children of Israel, being seven thousand. And they went out at noon. But Ben-hadad was drinking himself drunk in the pavilions, he and the kings, the thirty and two kings that helped him. And the young men of the princes of the provinces went out first; and Ben-hadad sent out, and they told him, saying, There are men come out from Samaria. And he said, Whether they are come out for peace, take them alive, or whether they are come out for war, take them alive. So these went out of the city, the young men of the princes of the provinces, and the army which followed them. And they slew every one his man; and the Syrians fled, and Israel pursued them: and Ben-hadad the king of Syria escaped on a horse with horsemen. ( 21 ) And the king of Israel went out, and smote the horses and chariots, and slew the Syrians with a great slaughter.

Psalm 104 : 15 - And wine that makes glad the heart of man, And oil to make his face to shine, And bread that strengthens man's heart.

Isaiah 5 : 11 - Woe to them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink; that tarry late into the night, till wine inflame them! And the harp and the lute, the tabret and the pipe, and wine, are in their feasts; but they regard not the work of Jehovah, neither have they considered the operation of his hands. Therefore my people are gone into captivity for lack of knowledge; and their honorable men are famished, and their multitude are parched with thirst. Therefore Sheol has enlarged its desire, and opened its mouth without measure; and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoices among them, descend into it. And the mean man is bowed down, and the great man is humbled, and the eyes of the lofty are humbled:but Jehovah of hosts is exalted in justice, and God the Holy One is sanctified in righteousness. Then shall the lambs feed as in their pasture, and the waste places of the fat ones shall wanderers eat. Woe to them that draw iniquity with cords of falsehood, and sin as it were with a cart rope; that say, Let him make speed, let him hasten his work, that we may see it; and let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw nigh and come, that we may know it! ( 19 )

Isaiah 28 : 1 - Woe to the crown of pride of the drunkards of Ephraim, and to the fading flower of his glorious beauty, which is on the head of the fat valley of them that are overcome with wine! Behold, the Lord has a mighty and strong one; as a tempest of hail, a destroying storm, as a tempest of mighty waters overflowing, will he cast down to the earth with the hand. The crown of pride of the drunkards of Ephraim shall be trodden under foot: and the fading flower of his glorious beauty, which is on the head of the fat valley, shall be as the first-ripe fig before the summer; which when he that looks upon it sees, while it is yet in his hand he eats it up. In that day will Jehovah of hosts become a crown of glory, and a diadem of beauty, to the residue of his people; and a spirit of justice to him that sits in judgment, and strength to them that turn back the battle at the gate. And even these reel with wine, and stagger with strong drink; the priest and the prophet reel with strong drink, they are swallowed up of wine, they stagger with strong drink; they err in vision, they stumble in judgment. For all tables are full of vomit and filthiness, so that there is no place clean.

Isaiah 55 : 1 - Ho, every one that thirsts, come to the waters, and he that has no money; come, buy, and eat; yes, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. Wherefore do you spend money for that which is not bread? and your labor for that which satisfies not? Hearken diligently to me, and eat that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness. Incline your ear, and come to me; hear, and your soul shall live: and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David

Isaiah 56 : 8 - The Lord Jehovah, who gathers the outcasts of Israel, says, Yet will I gather others to him, besides his own that are gathered. All you beasts of the field, come to devour, yes, all you beasts in the forest. His watchmen are blind, they are all without knowledge; they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; dreaming, lying down, loving to slumber. Yes, the dogs are greedy, they can never have enough; and these are shepherds that cannot understand: they have all turned to their own way, each one to his gain, from every quarter. Come you, say they, I will fetch wine, and we will fill ourselves with strong drink; and to-morrow shall be as this day, a day great beyond measure.

Kick Alcohol (New Testament)

Romans 14 : 21- It is good not to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor to do anything whereby your brother stumbles. The faith which you have, have you to yourself before God. Happy is he that judges not himself in that which he approves. But he that doubts is condemned if he eat, because he eats not of faith; and whatever is not of faith is sin.

1 Timothy 5: 23 - Be no longer a drinker of water, but use a little wine for your stomach's sake and your often infirmities.

Kick Alcohol (Old Testament)

Proverbs 20 : 1 - Wine is a mocker, strong drink a brawler; And whoever errs thereby is not wise.

Proverbs 23 : 20 - They that tarry long at the wine; They that go to seek out mixed wine.

Proverbs 23 : 29 - Who has woe? who has sorrow? who has contentions? Who has complaining? who has wounds without cause? Who has redness of eyes? They that tarry long at the wine; They that go to seek out mixed wine. Look not you upon the wine when it is red, When it sparkles in the cup, When it goes down smoothly: At the last it bites like a serpent, And stings like an adder. Your eyes shall behold strange things, And your heart shall utter perverse things. Yes, you shall be as he that lies down in the midst of the sea, Or as he that lies upon the top of a mast. They have stricken me, shall you say, and I was not hurt; They have beaten me, and I felt it not: When shall I awake? I will seek it yet again.( 35 End )

Proverbs 31 : 1 - The words of king Lemuel; the oracle which his mother taught him. What, my son? and what, O son of my womb? And what, O son of my vows? Give not your strength to women, Nor your ways to that which destroys kings.It is not for kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink wine; Nor for princes to say, Where is strong drink? Lest they drink, and forget the law, And pervert the justice due to any that is afflicted. Give strong drink to him that is ready to perish, And wine to the bitter in soul: Let him drink, and forget his poverty, And remember his misery no more.

Habakkuk 2 : 5 - Yes, moreover, wine is treacherous, a haughty man, that keeps not at home; who enlarges his desire as Sheol, and he is as death, and cannot be satisfied, but gathers to him all nations, and heaps to him all peoples. Shall not all these take up a parable against him, and a taunting proverb against him, and say, Woe to him that increases that which is not his! how long? and that lades himself with pledges! Shall they not rise up suddenly that shall bite you, and awake that shall vex you, and you shall be for booty to them?

Habakkuk 2 : 15 - Woe to him that gives his neighbor drink, to you that add your venom, and make him drunk also, that you may look on their nakedness! You are filled with shame, and not glory: drink also, and be as one uncircumcised; the cup of Jehovah's right hand shall come round to you, and foul shame shall be upon your glory. For the violence done to Lebanon shall cover you, and the destruction of the beasts, which made them afraid; because of men's blood, and for the violence done to the land, to the city and to all that dwell therein.

Daniel 5 : 1 - Belshazzar the king made a great feast to a thousand of his lords, and drank wine before the thousand. Belshazzar, while he tasted the wine, commanded to bring the golden and silver vessels which Nebuchadnezzar his father had taken out of the temple which was in Jerusalem; that the king and his lords, his wives and his concubines, might drink therefrom. Then they brought the golden vessels that were taken out of the temple of the house of God which was at Jerusalem; and the king and his lords, his wives and his concubines, drank from them. They drank wine, and praised the gods of gold, and of silver, of brass, of iron, of wood, and of stone. In the same hour came forth the fingers of a man's hand, and wrote over against the candlestick upon the plaster of the wall of the king's palace: and the king saw the part of the hand that wrote.
