Even though wine is forbidden, it depends upon who drinks it,
And then in what quantity & also with whom he drinks it
Whenever you have collected together these four conditions
If a wise man does not drink wine, who is to do so ?

 

Bodl 76

Even though wine is forbidden, for all that it depends upon who drinks it,
and then in what quantity, and also with whom he drinks it;
these three conditions being as they should be; say!
who drinks wine if a wise man does not do so?

Chr 20

"Wine is forbidden, it is true, but the question is: who
drinks? and then how much? and how and with whom he drinks?
When those four conditions are observed altogether,
then, if a wise man does not drink, who drinks?

Nic 180

Le vin est prohibé, soit, mais il n'est prohibé que suivant la personne qui en boit, suivant la quantité qu'elle en boit et suivant l'individu avec qui elle en boit. Une fois ces points-là observés, qui en boirait, sinon les sages?

P 249

Wine, though forbid, five things condition - he who drinks,
When, where, how much and what his company who drinks:
When these conditions five concord, drink wine at will,
For, these observed, except the sage it be, who drinks?

Th 244

To drink wine though forbidden, yet this ban
Is as to measure, company and man;
These three conditions being right, then say,
If wine a wise man cannot drink, who can?
