Rather than continuing this in Jonathan's question about another aspect of this verse, I have copied the relevant parts of his post and started this thread:
Proverbs 23:31 wrote: μὴ μεθύσκεσθε ἐν οἴνοις, ἀλλὰ ὁμιλεῖτε ἀνθρώποις δικαίοις καὶ ὁμιλεῖτε ἐν περιπάτοις· ἐὰν γὰρ εἰς τὰς φιάλας καὶ τὰ ποτήρια δῷς τοὺς ὀφθαλμούς σου, ὕστερον περιπατήσεις γυμνότερος ὑπέρου.
NETS wrote:Do not get drunk from wine;
rather converse with righteous people,
and converse in public places;
for if you give your eyes to saucers and
you will afterwards walk around more
naked than a pestle
What is this? A description, a euphemism, a semitism or something else? Are there similar expressions in the New Testament.
