1 Timothy 5 verse 23: "Drink no longer water, but use a little wine for thy stomach's sake and thine often infirmities."

Psalms 104 verse 15: "And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth man's heart."

Deuteronomy 14 verse 26: "And thou shalt bestow that money for whatsoever thy soul lusteth after, for oxen, or for sheep, or for wine, or for strong drink, or for whatsoever thy soul desireth: and thou shalt eat there before the LORD thy God, and thou shalt rejoice, thou, and thine household,"
