Psalms 69:21  (King James Version)
They gave me also gall for my meat; and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.

gall for my meat
Bochart, from a comparison of this passage with John 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." Jeremiah 8:14 ; 9:15 23:15 Matthew 27:34 Matthew 27:48
