CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Behold, I will fill all the inhabitants of this land - with drunkenness - You pretend to take this literally, but it is a symbol.

Manasseh will feed on Ephraim, and Ephraim on Manasseh; together they will turn against Judah. Yet for all this, his anger is not turned away, his hand is still upraised.
When its twigs are dry, they are broken off and women come and make fires with them. For this is a people without understanding; so their Maker has no compassion on them, and their Creator shows them no favor.
