      See drink

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    The first case of intoxication on record is that of Noah (Gen.
    9:21). The sin of drunkenness is frequently and strongly
    condemned (Rom. 13:13; 1 Cor. 6:9, 10; Eph. 5:18; 1 Thess. 5:7,
    8). The sin of drinking to excess seems to have been not
    uncommon among the Israelites.
      The word is used figuratively, when men are spoken of as being
    drunk with sorrow, and with the wine of God's wrath (Isa. 63:6;
    Jer. 51:57; Ezek. 23:33). To "add drunkenness to thirst" (Deut.
    29:19, A.V.) is a proverbial expression, rendered in the Revised
    Version "to destroy the moist with the dry", i.e., the
    well-watered equally with the dry land, meaning that the effect
    of such walking in the imagination of their own hearts would be
    to destroy one and all.
