The Masoretic Text(from the Hebrew Bible) says,(Hag. 1:6)
You have sown much and you bring in little. You eat without being
satiated. You drink without getting your fill. You dress, and it has
no warmth. And he who profits, profits into a bundle with holes
Interestingly, Rashi's Commentary says:
and you bring in little: because of the iniquity of the cessation of
[the offerings of] the first fruits.
You eat without being satiated: because of the iniquity of the
cessation of the meal-offerings.
You drink without getting your fill: for the taste of wine was taken
away because the libations ceased.
You dress, and it has no warmth: because of the iniquity of the
cessation of wearing the priestly garments.
And he who profits, profits into a bundle with holes: Any profit that
you make becomes less and less, like one who puts his money into a
cloth bundle with holes.
Both the NLT and GNT are attempts at making the bible more 'readable" to a modern audience, but suffer from departing from the original intent of the language.
The issue is not "thirsty vs drunk", the issue is when God's blessings are removed, what is the outcome?
Rashi's Commentary directly correlates their 'lack' with what God 'lacks' by the Temple not being built. Because the first fruit offerings, the drink offerings, the lack of priests to minister the offerings; the consequences are they are experiencing their own lack. Consequently, the prophets message is to "consider their ways"(vs 7) and bring in the wood to build the house, of which God promises "He will accept"(vs 8), which once they restore to God what is God's, He would consequently restore to them what is theirs.
As a side note, it was never 'acceptable" to become drunk; there are numerous admonitions in Proverbs, as well as throughout the bible. However, if one does not honor God in all things, as Ps. 69:22 says,
Let their table become a snare before them: and that which should have
been for their welfare, let it become a trap.
The blessing of God is to eat and drink of the sustenance He provides, but apart from Him gluttony and drunkenness are an outcome.
