    Clarke's Commentary on Proverbs 23:33

    Thine eyes shall behold strange women - Evil concupiscence is inseparable from drunkenness. Mr. Herbert shows these effects well: -

    He that is drunken may his mother kill,Big with his sister: he hath lost the reins;

    Is outlawed by himself. All kinds of illDid, with his liquor, slide into his veins.

    The drunkard forfeits man; and doth divestAll worldly right, save what he hath by beast.

    Herbert's Poems - The Church Porch.
