Verse 12. "I will fetch wine "Let us provide wine"" - For hjqa ekchah, first person singular, an ancient MS. has hjqn nikchah, first person plural; and another ancient MS. has qa ak upon a rasure. So the Syriac, a7valdee, and Vulgate render it. The spirit of this epicurean sentiment is this: Let us indulge ourselves in the present time to the utmost, and instead of any gloomy forebodings of the future, let us expect nothing but increasing hilarity for every day we shall live. Thus they, "Counting on long years of pleasure here, Are quite unfurnished for the world to come."
