Matthew 27:34 (King James Version)
They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink.
- 48 ; Psalms 69:21 ; Mark 15:23 ; John 19:28-30
- Mark says wine mingled with myrrh; but as the sour wine used by the Roman soldiers and common people was termed [oinos
] wine, and
] 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.
