Proverbs 23:33-34

Thine eyes shall behold strange women, and thine heart shall utter perverse things. Yea, thou shalt be as he that lieth down in the midst of the sea, or as he that lieth upon the top of a mast.

Solomon continues describing a drunkard – their eyes shall see “strange women”, which may be a reference to the horrors of delirium tremors, that are the mental disturbances caused by excessive and prolonged use of liquor or could be the women that frequent the establishments that serve the strong drink. Their conversation is thick, garbled, and vile and their walk is unsteady.
