כּוֹס pl. כֹּסוֹת f. (Jeremiah 25:15)
(1) a cup. Syr. ܟܣܳܐܳ, Chald. כּוֹסָא, כָּסָא, כּוֹזָא, [“Sam. Dan 11:1-45 Act 8:1-40 Act 8:1-40 and Act 1:1-26 Dan 2:1-49”], Arab. كَاسُ, كَأْسُ, كَوْزُ a cup full of wine. As to the etymology I have no doubt that the true origin was seen by Leberecht, a very skilful young Oriental scholar, who of late  made the observation, that כּוֹס appeared to him to be contracted from כֹּנֶס, כּוֹנֶס a receptacle, a vessel, a cup, like כִּיס a purse from כֵּנֶס, according to the analogy of the nouns אִישׁ for אֵנֶשׁ, בַּיִת for בַּנֶת, בֶּנֶת, compare also שַׁיִת. Genesis 40:11, 13 Genesis 40:13, 21 Genesis 40:21; 2 Samuel 12:3; Psalms 23:5. Psalms 116:13, כּוֹס־יְשׁוּעוֹת אֶשָּׂה “I will take the cup of salvation,” i.e. I will pour out the cup of thanksgiving to Jehovah, because of aid vouchsafed. In the prophets, Jehovah is sometimes represented as making the nations drink a cup of intoxicating wine (כּוֹס הַתַּרְעֵלָה), so that they rush reeling into destruction. Isaiah 51:17, 22 Isaiah 51:22; Jeremiah 25:15, 49:12 51:7 Lamentations 4:21; Habakkuk 2:16; Ezekiel 23:31, 32 Ezekiel 23:32, 33 Ezekiel 23:33 compare Revelation 17:4 and as to the same image as used by the Arabic poets, see my Comment. on Isaiah 51:17.-Elsewhere cup is used metaphorically of lot, the image of a cup however being retained, Psalms 11:6, 16:5 compare Matthew 26:39, 20:22 and see my observations out of Arabic writers, on Isaiah 51:17, on Matt. loc. cit. in Rosenmüller’s Repertorium, i. p. 130, and in the London Classical Journal, liii. p. 159.
(2) a certain unclean bird (Leviticus 11:17 Deuter. 14:16 ), dwelling amongst ruins (Psalms 102:7). Some of the ancient translators render it night owl, but this is not supported by its etymology. Bochart more correctly (Hieroz. ii. p. 267) understands it to be the pelican, or cormorant, so called from the pouch or bag hanging from the throat; like the Lat. truo from trua.
