Thus saith the Lord God, thou shall drink of thy sister's cup
deep and large
That is, partake of the same punishment, which was very great, signified by a deep and large cup, which holds much: thou shall be laughed to scorn, and had in derision;
by the nations round about, who, instead of pitying them under their troubles, will rejoice at them; just as drunken men are laughed at, when intoxicated and reeling about: it containeth much;
the cup of wrath and vengeance; as much as will last severity years drinking. The Targum connects this with the preceding clause,
``and thou shalt be for derision and for laughter, because of the greatness of the tribulation that shall come upon thee.''
