    SEV Biblia, Chapter 23:31

    No mires al vino cuando rojea, cuando resplandece su color en el vaso, se entra suavemente;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 23:31

    Verse 31. Look not thou upon the
    wine - Let neither the colour, the odour, the sparkling, &c., of the wine, when poured out, induce thee to drink of it. However good and pure it may be, it will to thee be a snare, because thou art addicted to it, and hast no self-command.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 31. Look not thou upon the
    wine when it is red , etc.] Or, “because it is red” f643 ; or shows itself red. Which was the only wine used in the land of Canaan, or, however, the most esteemed of, and that most of art which had the best colour; when it had a good, bright, red colour, or sparkled, and looked bright and beautiful, so the word signifies; and then it should not be looked upon: not that it is unlawful to look upon the colour of wine, and thereby judge of its goodness; but it should not be looked upon with a greedy eye, so as vehemently to desire it, which will lead to an intemperate use of it; just as looking upon a woman, so as to lust after her, is forbidden, ( Matthew 5:28); when it giveth his colour in the cup : or, its eye in the cup f644 ; such a bright, brisk, and beautiful colour, as is like a bright and sparkling eye. Here is a various reading; it is written in the text, “in the purse” f645 ; it is read in the margin, “in the cup”; and Jarchi’s note takes in both, “he that drinks wine sets his eye on the cup; and the vintner sets his on his purse;” [when] it moveth itself aright ; sparkles in the glass, or goes down the throat pleasantly; or rather looks well to the eye, and appears right and good, and promises a great deal of satisfaction and delight.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 29-35 -
    Solomon warns against drunkenness. Those that would be kept from sin must keep from all the beginnings of it, and fear coming within reac of its allurements. Foresee the punishment, what it will at last en in, if repentance prevent not. It makes men quarrel. Drunkards wilfull make woe and sorrow for themselves. It makes men impure and insolent The tongue grows unruly; the heart utters things contrary to reason religion, and common civility. It stupifies and besots men. They are i danger of death, of damnation; as much exposed as if they slept upo the top of a mast, yet feel secure. They fear no peril when the terror of the Lord are before them; they feel no pain when the judgments of God are actually upon them. So lost is a drunkard to virtue and honour so wretchedly is his conscience seared, that he is not ashamed to say I will seek it again. With good reason we were bid to stop before the beginning. Who that has common sense would contract a habit, or sel himself to a sin, which tends to such guilt and misery, and exposes man every day to the danger of dying insensible, and awaking in hell Wisdom seems in these chapters to take up the discourse as at the beginning of the book. They must be considered as the words of Chris to the sinner __________________________________________________________________
