Morrish Bible Dictionary
Various Hebrew words are so translated, having regard to the different uses to which the cup was put. It is frequently used for that which the cup contains, causing either joy or sorrow, as "I will take the cup of salvation and call upon the name of the Lord." Psalm 116:13 . "In the hand of the Lord there is a cup, and the wine is red . . . . the dregs thereof, all the wicked of the earth shall wring them out and drink them." Psalm 75:8 : cf. Revelation 14:10; Revelation 16:19 , etc. And so in many other instances; and especially in that of the cup of which the Lord Jesus drank when bearing sin. Matthew 26:27,39,42; John 18:11 . In the Lord's Supper the 'cup' is put for the wine which was an emblem of the blood of Christ. 1 Corinthians 10:16,21; 1 Corinthians 11:25-28 .
