Author: Stephen E. Jones
The Hebrew word for " wormwood" is lahanaw. According to Strong's Concordance, the word means "to poison." It's root word means "to curse." Other passages use words like "bitter as wormwood" (Prov. 5:14) and "drunken with wormwood" (Lam. 3:15). This shows that whatever this substance is , it is something bitter that people may consume orally, and it makes people "drunk." However it is not wine or fermented drink of any kind.
A well researched and clearly presented Biblical study by Dr. Stephen Jones.
