You will be filled with shame, and not glory.
Drink, you yourself, and expose your uncircumcision!
The cup in Yahweh’s right hand will come around to you,
and disgrace will cover your glory. Bible

“expose your uncircumcision.” The literal Hebrew is “be uncircumcised,” but the meaning is to show your uncircumcision to others. This would mean the genitalia would be exposed. Some English versions have “stagger,” or “stumble.” That reading comes from a few Hebrew manuscripts and the Dead Sea Scrolls, but the accepted Hebrew text makes sense in the context and has been defended by scholars.
