Isaiah 28:7

But they also have erred through wine, and through strong drink are out of the way; the priest and the prophet have erred through strong drink, they are swallowed up by wine, they are out of the way through strong drink; they err in vision, they stumble in judgment.
Read Chapter 28

Pachomius the Great

AD 348
In fact, our fathers passed their lives in hunger, thirst and great mortification, by which they acquired purity. Above all they fled the wine habit, which is full of every evil. Troubles, tumults and disorders are caused in our members through the abuse of wine; this is a passion full of sin, it is sterility and the withering of fruit. For sensuality in unquenchable thirst stupefies the understanding, makes conscience overbold and snaps the rein on the tongue. Total joy is when we do not grieve the Holy Spirit, or become deranged by sensuality. As it is said, “The priest and the prophet were deranged by wine.” … Therefore, all who have prepared to become disciples of Jesus should abstain from wine and drunkenness. - "Instructions 45"

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
