"Drink no longer water, but use a little wine for thy stomach's sake, and thine often infirmities." 1 Tim. 5:23.
NOTE. - There are two kinds of wine spoken of in the Bible. One of these was the juice of the grape, and was pressed from the fruit into the cup as it was needed to drink. Gen. 40:11. It is this kind that is said to cheer God and man (Judges 9:13), and is dried up when the vine is destroyed. Joel 1:10-12. The other kind was that which had stood until it fermented, and alcohol had formed from the decaying substance.
