From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary :

  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.
