Nah 3:11

3:11 drunken. Apparently a figurative reference to the cup of the Lord’s anger, from which all who defy Him are forced to drink (Is. 51:17–23). Nineveh in her distress tries to hide and find refuge, but only the Lord provides refuge in times of trouble (1:7). Compared to Him even the most powerful are weak and vulnerable (vv. 12–17).
