Although wine has rent my veil
So long as I have a soul I will not be separated from wine,
I am in perplexity concerning vintners, for they —
What will they buy that is better than what they sell ?

 

Bodl 62

Although wine has rent my veil,
so long as I have a soul I will not be separated from wine;
I am in perplexity concerning vintners, for they —
what will they buy that is better than what they sell?

Chr 70

Nobody, since the revolving sphere has been visible on
heaven, has seen anything that is better than ruby wine.
I wonder at the wine-sellers, for what will they buy
that is better than that which they sell?

F4 95

And much as Wine has play'd the Infidel,
And robb'd me of my Robe of Honour--Well,
I wonder often what the Vintners buy
One half so precious as the stuff they sell.

HA 95

Although wine has rent my veil (of reputation),
So long as I have a soul I will not be separated from wine;
I am in perplexity concerning vintners, for they—
What will they buy that is better than what they sell ?

Th 656

Though drink has torn my veil, while life have I,
Wine I 'll not leave. I 'm in perplexity
Concerning those who deal in wine, for they—
Better than that they sell, what will they buy?

Wh 208

While Moon and Venus in the sky shall dwell,
None shall see aught red grape-juice to excel:
O foolish publicans, what can you buy
One half so precious as the goods you sell?
