  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Drunk 
  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
