Jesus said, "I took my stand in the midst of the world, and in flesh I appeared to them. 2 I found them all drunk, and I did not find any of them thirsty. 3 My soul ached for the children of humanity, because they are blind in their hearts and do not see, for they came into the world empty, and they also seek to depart from the world empty. But meanwhile they are drunk. When they shake off their wine, then they will change their ways." [Complete Gospels]

“λέγει Ἰ(ησοῦ)ς· ἔ[σ]την ἐν μέσῳ τοῦ κόσμου καὶ ἐν σαρκὶ ὤφθην αὐτοῖς καὶ εὗρον πάντας μεθύοντας καὶ οὐδένα εὗρον δειψώ(ν)τα ἐν αὐτοῖς καὶ πονεῖ ἡ ψυχή μου ἐπὶ τοῖς υἱοῖς τῶν ἀν(θρώπ)ων ὅτι τυφλοί εἰσιν τῇ καρδίᾳ αὐτῶ[ν] καὶ [οὐ] βλέπ[ουσιν ὅτι . . .]” (Thomas 1:28 AGOSP-T)
