New International Version
Then the Lord awoke as from sleep, as a warrior wakes from the stupor of wine.
King James Bible
Then the Lord awaked as one out of sleep, and like a mighty man that shouteth by reason of wine.

World English Bible

Young's Literal Translation
And the Lord waketh as a sleeper, As a mighty one crying aloud from wine.
Psalm 78:65 Parallel

Be still before the LORD, all mankind, because he has roused himself from his holy dwelling."
and the LORD Almighty will shield them. They will destroy and overcome with slingstones. They will drink and roar as with wine; they will be full like a bowl used for sprinkling the corners of the altar.
