Greek - strong drink
Hebrew - strong drink

An intoxicating drink made from grain. It may have at first been used of beer made from barley. Wine is usually included along with strong drink but is separate from it (1 Samuel 1:15; Judges 13:4,Judges 13:7,Judges 13:14; Luke 1:15). It was usually denied to priests (Leviticus 10:8-9) and those who took the Nazirite vow (Numbers 6:3). Isaiah warned against drinking too much (Numbers 5:11). The Bible warns against drunkenness. The New Testament says that the drunkard will have no place in the kingdom of God (1 Corinthians 6:9-10). See Drunkenness; Wine.
