Treasury of Scripture
Matthew 27:34 They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink.
Matthew 27:48 And straightway one of them ran, and took a sponge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink.
Psalm 69:21 They gave me also gall for my meat; and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.
Mark 15:23 And they gave him to drink wine mingled with myrrh: but he received it not.
John 19:28-30 After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, said, I thirst...
vinegar. Mark says wine mingled with myrrh; but as the sour wine used by the Roman soldiers and common people was termed [oinos] wine, and [oxos] vinegar, [vin aigre, French,] is sour wine; and as [chole] gall, is applied to bitters of any kind, it is not difficult to reconcile the two accounts.
