DRAUGHT

draft (aphedron; Matthew 15:17; Mark 7:19):

"Closet," "sink" or "privy" (Rheims), literally, "place for sitting apart" (compare 2 Kings 10:27, "draught-house," and Mishna "water-house"). According to the Mishna, Jehu turned the temple of Baal in Samaria into public latrines, "waterhouses." Mark adds here (Mark 7:19) that by this saying Jesus cleansed all articles of food, i.e., declared them to be clean.
