Cross References

gall for my meat.Bochart, from a comparison of this passage with Joh 19:29, thinks that {rosh} is the same herb as the evangelist calls [
,] hyssop; a species of which, growing in Judea, he proves from Isaac ben Orman, an Arabian writer, to be so bitter as not to be eatable.
Theophylact expressly tells us, that the hyssop was added [
,] as being deleterious, or poisonous: and Nonnus, in his paraphrase, says, [
] "One gave the deadly acid mixed with hyssop."

J. N. Darby Translation

Yea, they gave me galld for my food, and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.
