King James Version (KJV)

King James Bible KJV


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.
