Hebrew - drunkenness

Is referred to in the Bible both in single instances and as a habit. Its folly is often illustrated, Psalms 107:27 Isaiah 19:14 24:20 28:7,8, its guilt denounced, Isaiah 5:22, its ill results traced, 1 Samuel 25:36 1 Kings 16:9 20:16, and its doom shown, 1 Corinthians 6:9,10. It is produced by wine, Genesis 9:21 21:33 Jeremiah 23:9 Ephesians 5:18, as well as by "strong drink," 1 Samuel 1:13-15 Isaiah 5:11. Hence the use of these was forbidden to the priests at the altar, Leviticus 10:9; and all are cautioned to avoid them, Proverbs 20:1 23:20. To tempt others to drunkenness is a sin accursed of God, 2 Samuel 11:13 Habakkuk 2:15,16. Its prevalence in a community is inseparable from the habitual use of any inebriating liquor. Hence the efforts made by the wise and good to secure abstinence from all intoxicating drinks, 1 Corinthians 8:13. See WINE.
