Can anyone answer a question about absinthe in the Bible? In Lamentations 3:15
3:15. He. He hath filled me with bitterness, he hath inebriated me with wormwood.
Inebriated with wormwood is "inebriavit me absinthio" and that seems to be a reference to drinking, but I thought that absinthe wasn't around in those days?
Thanks to any theologians out there
