Eating and Drinking

The Admonitions of Ipuwer (Papyrus Leiden 344), VIII (tr. Miriam Lichtheim):
Lo, a man is happy eating his food. Consume your goods in gladness, while there is none to hinder you. It is good for a man to eat his food. God ordains it for him whom he favors.
Id., XIII:
It is however good when people get drunk, when they drink miyet with happy hearts.
