You are what you eat & drink

Saturday Satire

Light beer is a sin!

 

Isaiah 1:22
כספך היה לסיגים
Your silver has become dross
Note: the verb hayah with le signifies “become.”

סבאך מהול במים
Your beer diluted with water.
Note: the noun sovei is a kind of drink, some say wine, but Holladay says “suggestion: beer.”

Jerusalem doesn’t need dross in its silver and neither does it need its beer diluted with water. So there you have it!

From: Messianic Jewish Musings
