Parallel VersesNew American Standard Bible
"It shall be when he hears the words of this curse, that he will boast, saying, 'I have peace though I walk in the stubbornness of my heart in order to destroy the watered land with the dry.'
King James Bible
And it come to pass, when he heareth the words of this curse, that he bless himself in his heart, saying, I shall have peace, though I walk in the imagination of mine heart, to add drunkenness to thirst:
Holman Christian Standard Bible
When someone hears the words of this oath, he may consider himself exempt, thinking, 'I will have peace even though I follow my own stubborn heart.' This will lead to the destruction of the well-watered land as well as the dry land.

imagination. or, stubbornest
to add A very forcible metaphor, denoting the natural progress and increasing avidity of sinful passions and depraved inclinations; which lead men to drink down iniquity as the drunkard does his liquor, without regard to the consequences. Some render, `to add thirst to drunkenness;' and then it implies the insatiableness of men's sinful passions, which pander for more and more indulgence after the greatest excesses.
drunkenness to thirst [heb] the drunken to the thirsty
