Ye cannot (ou dunasqe). Morally impossible to drink the Lord's cup and the cup of demons, to partake of the Lord's table and the table of demons. Of the table of the Lord (trapezh Kuriou). No articles, but definite idea. Trapeza is from tetra (four) and peza (a foot), four-footed. Here table means, as often, what is on the table. See Luke 22:30 where Jesus says "at my table" (epi th trapezh mou), referring to the spiritual feast hereafter. Here the reference is plainly to the Lord's Supper (Kuriakon deipnon, 1 Corinthians 11:20 ). See allusions in O.T. to use of the table in heathen idol feasts ( Isaiah 65:11 ; Jeremiah 7:18 ; Ezekiel 16:18 ; Ezekiel 23:41 ). The altar of burnt-offering is called the table of the Lord in Malachi 1:7 (Vincent).
