Esther 1:10 On the seventh day.

Here we have Luxuriosi convivii luctuosum exitum, a sad end of a luxurious feast.

Sin usually endeth tragically.

On the six former days of the feast, having farced his body with good cheer like a woolsack, and inflamed it with wine wherein was excess, he bethinks himself of other pleasures.

Vina parant animos Veneri (Ovid).

Aristophanes calleth wine the milk of Venus and fuel of lust.

Ambrose saith that lust is fed with feasts, nourished with delicacies, kindled with wine, set on flame with drunkenness (lib. i. de Paenit. c. 4).

A belly filled with wine foameth out filthiness, saith Jerome.
