Easton's Bible Dictionary - Eating
The ancient Hebrews would not eat with the Egyptians (Genesis 43:32 ). In the time of our Lord they would not eat with Samaritans (John 4:9 ), and were astonished that he ate with publicans and sinners (Matthew 9:11 ). The Hebrews originally sat at table, but afterwards adopted the Persian and Chaldean practice of reclining (Luke 7:36-50 ). Their principal meal was at noon (Genesis 43:16 ; 1 Kings 20:16 ; Ruth 2:14 ; Luke 14:12 ). The word "eat" is used metaphorically in Jeremiah 15:16 ; Ezekiel 3:1 ; Revelation 10:9 . In John 6:53-58 , "eating and drinking" means believing in Christ. Women were never present as guests at meals (q.v.).
Vine's Expository Dictionary of NT Words - Eat, Eat With, Eating
A — 1: ἐσθίω (Strong's #2068 — — esthio — es-thee'-o ) signifies "to eat" (as distinct from pino, "to drink"); it is a lengthened form from edo (Lat., edo; cp. Eng., "edible"); in Hebrews 10:27 , metaphorically, "devour;" it is said of the ordinary use of food and drink, 1 Corinthians 9:7 ; 11:22 ; of partaking of food at table, e.g., Mark 2:16 ; of reveling, Matthew 24:49 ; Luke 12:45 . Cp. the strengthened, form katesthio, and the verb sunesthio, below. See DEVOUR.
A — 2: φάγω (Strong's #5315 — Verb — phago — fag'-o ) "to eat, devour, consume," is obsolete in the present and other tenses, but supplies certain tenses which are wanting in No. 1, above. In Luke 8:55 the AV has "(to give her) meat," the RV "(that something be given her) to eat." The idea that this verb combines both "eating" and "drinking," while No. 1 differentiates the one from the other, is not borne out in the NT. The word is very frequent in the Gospels and is used eleven times in 1Cor. See also No. 3. See MEAT.
A — 3: τρώγω (Strong's #5176 — Verb — trogo — tro'-go ) primarily, "to gnaw, to chew," stresses the slow process; it is used metaphorically of the habit of spiritually feeding upon Christ, John 6:54,56-58 (the aorists here do not indicate a definite act, but view a series of acts seen in perspective); of the constant custom of "eating" in certain company, John 13:18 ; of a practice unduly engrossing the world, Matthew 24:38 .
In John 6 , the change in the Lord's use from the verb esthio (phago) to the stronger verb trogo, is noticeable. The more persistent the unbelief of His hearers, the more difficult His language and statements became. In vv. 49-53 the verb phago is used; in 54,58, trogo (in ver. 58 it is put into immediate contrast with phago). The use of trogo in Matthew 24:38 ; John 13:18 is a witness against pressing into the meaning of the word the sense of munching or gnawing; it had largely lost this sense in its common usage.
A — 4: γεύομαι (Strong's #1089 — Verb — geuo — ghyoo'-om-ahee ) primarily, "to cause to taste, to give one a taste of," is used in the Middle Voice and denotes (a) "to taste," its usual meaning; (b) "to take food, to eat," Acts 10:10 ; 20:11 ; 23:14 ; the meaning to taste must not be pressed in these passages, the verb having acquired the more general meaning. As to whether Acts 20:11 refers to the Lord's Supper or to an ordinary meal, the addition of the words "and eaten" is perhaps a sufficient indication that the latter is referred to here, whereas ver. 7, where the single phrase "to break bread" is used, refers to the Lord's Supper. A parallel instance is found in Acts 2:43,46 . In the former verse the phrase "the breaking of bread," unaccompanied by any word about taking food, clearly stands for the Lord's Supper; whereas in ver. 46 the phrase "breaking bread at home" is immediately explained by "they did take their food," indicating their ordinary meals. See TASTE.
A — 5: βιβρώσκω (Strong's #977 — Verb — bibrosko — bib-ro'-sko ) "to eat," is derived from a root, bor---, "to devour" (likewise seen in the noun broma, "food, meat;" cp. Eng., "carnivorous," "voracious," from Lat. vorax). This verb is found in John 6:13 . The difference between this and phago, No. 2, above, may be seen perhaps in the fact that whereas in the Lord's question to Philip in ver. 5, phago intimates nothing about a full supply, the verb bibrosko, in ver. 13, indicates that the people had been provided with a big meal, of which they had partaken eagerly.
A — 6: κατεσθίω (Strong's #2719 — Verb — kataphago — kat-es-thee'-o ) "to satiate, to satisfy," as with food, is used in the Middle Voice in Acts 27:38 , "had eaten enough;" in 1 Corinthians 4:8 , "ye are filled." See FILL.
A — 7: κορέννυμι (Strong's #2880 — Verb — korennumi — kor-en'-noo-mee ) "to satiate, to satisfy," as with food, is used in the Middle Voice in Acts 27:38 , "had eaten enough;" in 1 Corinthians 4:8 , "ye are filled." See FILL.
A — 8: συνεσθίω (Strong's #4906 — Verb — sunesthio — soon-es-thee'-o ) "to eat with" (sun, "with," and No. 1), is found in Luke 15:2 ; Acts 10:41 ; 11:3 ; 1 Corinthians 5:11 ; Galatians 2:12 .
A — 9: νομή (Strong's #3542 2192 — Noun Feminine — nomen echo — nom-ah' ) is a phrase consisting of the noun nome, denoting (a) "pasturage," (b) "growth, increase," and echo, "to have." In John 10:9 the phrase signifies "to find pasture" (a). In 2 Timothy 2:17 , with the meaning (b), the phrase is, lit., "will have growth," translated "will eat," i.e., "will spread like a gangrene." It is used in Greek writings, other than the NT, of the spread of a fire, and of ulcers. See PASTURE.
Note: The verb metalambano, "to take a part or share of anything with others, to partake of, share," is translated "did eat," in Acts 2:46 , corrected in the RV to "did take;" a still more suitable rendering would be "shared," the sharing of food being suggested; cp. metadidomi, "to share," e.g., Luke 3:11 .
B — 1: βρῶσις (Strong's #1035 — Noun Feminine — brosis — bro'-sis ) akin to A, No. 5, denotes (a) "the act of eating," e.g., Romans 14:17 ; said of rust, Matthew 6:19,20 ; or, more usually (b) "that which is eaten, food" (like broma, "food"), "meat," John 4:32 ; 6:27,55 ; Colossians 2:16 ; Hebrews 12:16 ("morsel of meat"); "food," 2 Corinthians 9:10 ; "eating," 1 Corinthians 8:4 . See FOOD , MEAT , RUST.
B — 2: προσφάγιον (Strong's #4371 — Noun Neuter — prosphagion — pros-fag'-ee-on ) primarily "a dainty or relish" (especially cooked fish), to be eaten with bread (pros, "to," and A, No. 2), then, "fish" in general, is used in John 21:5 , "Have ye aught to eat?" (AV, "have ye any meat?"). Moulton remarks that the evidences of the papyri are to the effect that prosphagion, "is not so broad a word as 'something to eat.' The Apostles had left even loaves behind them once, Mark 8:14 ; they might well have left the 'relish' on this occasion. It would normally be fish; cp. Mark 6:38 " (Gram. of NT Greek, Vol. 1, p. 170).
C — 1: βρώσιμος (Strong's #1034 — Adjective — brosimos — bro'-sim-os ) akin to A, No. 5, and B., signifying "eatable," is found in Luke 24:41 , RV, appropriately, "to eat," for the AV, "meat." In the Sept., Leviticus 19:23 ; Nehemiah 9:25 ; Ezekiel 47:12 .

Hastings' Dictionary of the New Testament - Eating And Drinking
EATING AND DRINKING.—Eating and drinking are occasionally referred to in the Gospels as acts expressive of men’s ordinary life. The simple natural life of Jesus was thus contrasted with the austere ways of the Baptist (Matthew 11:19, Luke 7:34). The servant waits till the master has eaten and drunken, and afterwards he eats and drinks (Luke 17:8); in the days of Noah men went on eating and drinking, heedless of the coming flood (Luke 17:27-28); and the rich fool still says to his soul, ‘Take thine ease, eat, drink, be merry’ (Luke 12:19). The careless self-indulgence of the servant who, in his lord’s absence, began to eat and drink with the drunken (Matthew 24:49, Luke 12:45) is condemned on the one hand; and so, on the other hand, is that over anxiety which keeps saying, ‘What shall we eat? or What shall we drink? or Wherewithal shall we be clothed?’ (Matthew 6:24-34, Luke 12:22-34). The scribes and Pharisees complained that Jesus ate and drank with publicans and sinners (Luke 5:30), which was His glory; and it will be the glory of those who continue with Him in His temptations that they will eat and drink at His table in His Kingdom (Luke 22:30).

The Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary - Eating
The custom of eating in the Eastern world, totally differed from our customs and manners. It was always in a reclining posture. And there was great attention paid to the company, even in their ordinary meals. The patriarchs ate by themselves. And when our fathers were in Egypt, we are told, that it was an abomination for the Egyptians to sit at meat with the Hebrews. (Genesis 43:32) It is our happiness that these distinctions are done away. Jesus received sinners, and ate with them. Well it is for us he did. (Luke 15:2) How blessedly the apostle speaks on the subject: "The kingdom of God is not meat and drink, but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost." (Romans 14:17) It may not be unacceptable to the readers, for whom I particularly intend this Concordance, to set before them an account of the extraordinary attention the ancient Jews observed in their seasons of meals, to a scrupulous exactness. It may be more than gratifying as an history, for it may be profitable in beholding what was unimportant among them, while we gather improvement from what was becoming. The view of both may be useful. The Jews never sat down to the table until that they had first washed their hands. Hence, their surprise, at the freedom of Christ and his disciples on this occasion. (Matthew 15:2; Mark 7:2-4) When they have finished their repast, they wash again. None of the company begin to eat until that the governor or master of the feast hath broken bread, and craved a blessing. One of the fathers gives us the usual words of this blessing. The words were "Blessed be thou, O Lord, our God, the King of the world, for it is thou who produceth the bread of the earth." All present say, Amen. And the master of the table generally helps the guests, however numerous they may be. When they have eaten, he takes the vessel of wine in his right hand, saying as before "Blessed be thou, O Lord our God, the King of the world, who hast produced the fruit of the vine." The Amen is, as before, repeated. Then is generally repeated the twenty-third Psalm. There is always reserved a portion of bread after their meals, which is suffered to remain on the table. Was not this with an eye to Christ, the bread of life? (John 6:48) A cup is usually washed at the close of the entertainment, and is filled with wine, when the governor or master of the feast saith, elevating it to the view of the whole company, "Let us bless him, of whose benefits we have been partaking." The company answer, "Blessed be he who hath heaped his favours on us, and by his goodness hath now fed us." This is followed up with prayer, in which is generally expressed the Lord's goodness to Israel, beseeching him to pity Jerusalem and his temple, to restore the throne of David, and to send Elias and the Messiah, and to deliver them out of their long captivity: all answer Amen. A Psalm is again recited, and the cup of wine is given by the master of the table to every one. The table is then cleared, and the service finisheth. I have thought it worth rehearsing this custom of the ancient Jews, because it serves to shew how much devotion mingled even with their ordinary meals. I take shame and reproach to myself in the recollection, how such conduct puts to the blush modern Christians. At what table shall we go to find so much piety? They looked forward but to the Messiah to come. We profess to believe that he is come, and hath restored all things. Blessed Lord Jesus! How dost thou daily witness the graceless tables of thousands that call themselves after thee, Christians, but where not the vestige of the Christian is to be found.
Watson's Biblical & Theological Dictionary - Eating
The ancient Hebrews did not eat indifferently with all persons:
they would have esteemed themselves polluted and dishonoured by eating with people of another religion, or of an odious profession. In Joseph's day they neither ate with the Egyptians, nor the Egyptians with them, Genesis 43:32 ; nor, in our Saviour's time, with the Samaritans, John 4:9 . The Jews were scandalized at Christ's eating with publicans and sinners,
Matthew 9:11 . As there were several sorts of meats, the use of which was prohibited, they could not conveniently eat with those who partook of them, fearing to receive pollution by touching such food, or if by accident any particles of it should fall on them. The ancient Hebrews, at their meals, had each his separate table. Joseph, entertaining his brethren in Egypt, seated them separately, each at his particular table; and he himself sat down separately from the Egyptians, who ate with him; but he sent to his brethren portions out of the provisions which were before him, Genesis 43:31 , &c. Elkanah, Samuel's father, who had two wives, distributed their portions to them separately, 1 Samuel 1:4-5 . In Homer, each guest has his little table apart; and the master of the feast distributes meat to each. We are assured that this is still practised in China; and that many in India never eat out of the same dish, nor on the same table, with another person, believing that they cannot do so without sin; and this, not only in their own country, but when travelling, and in foreign lands.
The ancient manners which we see in Homer we see likewise in Scripture, with regard to eating, drinking, and entertainments: we find great plenty, but little delicacy; and great respect and honour paid to the guests by serving them plentifully. Joseph sent his brother Benjamin a portion five times larger than those of his other brethren. Samuel set a whole quarter of a calf before Saul. The women did not appear at table in entertainments with the men: this would have been an indecency; as it is at this day throughout the east. The present Jews, before they sit down to table, carefully wash their hands: they speak of this ceremony as essential and obligatory. After meals they wash them again. When they sit down to table, the master of the house, or the chief person in the company, taking bread, breaks it, but does not wholly separate it; then, putting his hand on it, he recites this blessing: "Blessed be thou, O Lord our God, the King of the world, who producest the bread of the earth." Those present answer, "Amen." Having distributed the bread among the guests, he takes the vessel of wine in his right hand, saying, "Blessed art thou, O Lord our God, King of the world, who hast produced the fruit of the vine." They then repeat the twenty-third Psalm. Buxtorf, and Leo of Modena, who have given particular accounts of the Jewish ceremonies, differ in some circumstances: the reason is, Buxtorf wrote principally the ceremonies of the German Jews, and Leo, those of the Italian Jews. They take care that, after meals, there shall be a piece of bread remaining on the table; the master of the house orders a glass to be washed, fills it with wine, and, elevating it, says," Let us bless Him of whose benefits we have been partaking:" the rest answer, "Blessed be He who has heaped his favours on us, and by his goodness has now fed us." Then he recites a pretty long prayer, wherein he thanks God for his many benefits vouchsafed to Israel; beseeches him to pity Jerusalem and his temple, to restore the throne of David, to send Elias and the Messiah, to deliver them out of their long captivity, &c. All present answer, "Amen;" and then recite Psalms 34:9-10 . Then, giving the glass with the little wine in it to be drunk round, he drinks what is left, and the table is cleared. See BANQUETS .
Partaking of the benefits of Christ's passion by faith is also called eating, because this is the support of our spiritual life, John 6:53 ; John 6:56 . Hosea reproaches the priests of his time with eating the sins of the people, Hosea 4:8 ; that is, feasting on their sin offerings, rather than reforming their manners. John the Baptist is said to have come "neither eating nor drinking," Matthew 11:18 ; that is, as other men did; for he lived in the wilderness, on locusts, wild honey, and water, Matthew 3:4 ; Luke 1:15 . This is expressed: in Luke 7:33 , by his neither eating "bread," nor drinking "wine." On the other hand, the Son of Man is said, in Matthew 11:19 , to have come "eating and drinking;" that is, as others did; and that too with all sorts of persons, Pharisees, publicans, and sinners.
American Tract Society Bible Dictionary - Eating, Mode of
The Hebrews anciently sat at their meals, Genesis 43:33 1 Samuel 9:22 20:25 Psalm 128:3 ; but afterwards adopted the practice of reclining on table-beds or divans, like the Persians, Chaldeans, Romans, etc., Amos 6:4 . The accompanying engraving of a Roman triclinium, three beds, will illustrate several points obscure to the modern reader of the Bible. It will be seen that three low tables are so placed as to form three sides of a hollow square accessible to the waiters. Around these tables are placed, not seats, but couches, or beds, on to each table, formed of mattresses stuffed, and often highly ornamented, Esther 1:6 7:1,8 . The guests reclined with their heads to the table, each one leaning on his left elbow, and therefore using principally his right hand in taking food. Observe also that the feet of the person reclining being towards the external edge of the bed, they were much more readily reached by any one passing than any other part of the person than any other part of the person so reclining, Luke 7:36 - 50 John 12:3 .
This mode of reclining at table rendered it easy for our Lord to wash the feet of his disciples at the last supper, John 13:5-12 , and "wiped them with the towel wherewith he was girded." It also explains the position of John at the same supper; for if he reclined next in front of the Savior, he lay as it were in his bosom, John 13:23,25 , and might readily lean back his head upon the Savior's breast.
It is unknown, however, how far or how long this custom displaced the primitive eastern mode still prevalent in Palestine and vicinity. The ordinary table was no more than a circular skin or carpet spread upon the floor, or on rugs or cushions. Sometimes there was a small table in the center, raising the principal dish a little above the floor.
The meals of the Jews were generally two, loosely distinguished as dinner and supper, Luke 14:12 John 21:12 . The first meal was usually light, consisting of milk, cheese, bread, or fruits, and eaten at various hours from early morning to the middle of the forenoon. In the early history of the Hebrews, the principal meal, corresponding with our dinner, was eaten about noon, Genesis 43:25 1 Kings 20:16 . At a later period, at least on festive occasions, it was taken after the heat of the day was over. This was the "supper." The Jews were wont to wash their hands before eating, a custom rendered necessary by their mode of eating, but made by the Pharisees a test of piety, Mark 7:2,3 Luke 11:38 . Devout Jews, not only in their sacred feasts, but in their daily enjoyments at the family meal, recognized the Giver of all good, and implored his blessing on their food, 1 Samuel 9:13 Matthew 14:19 15:36 26:26 Luke 9:16 John 6:11 1 Timothy 4:3 . Some families repeated the twenty-third Psalm as they seated themselves at meals. The food consisted of flesh, fish, or fowls, butter, honey, bread, and fruits. See FOOD. Animal food was often cut into small pieces, or stewed, and served up in one large dish with melted butter, vegetables, etc. Knives, forks, and spoons were unknown as table-furniture; and the food was conveyed to the mouth by the right hand, Proverbs 19:24 . Each person took a portion from the dish either with his thumb and fingers, or with the help of a small piece of thin bread. Several hands were occasionally plunged into the same dish at once, John 13:26 . The head of the family was wont to send a double portion of food to a stranger, as an honor, and to furnish him a greater variety, Genesis 43:31 1 Samuel 1:4 9:22-24 ; and often would select the choicest morsels and present them to his guest with his own fingers. Compare Ruth 2:14 , and John 13:26 . This is still customary in the East. After eating, the hands were again cleansed by pouring water upon them, 2 Kings 3:11 . See FEAST, WASHING .
The following description of a dinner at Hebron is from Dr. Robinson. "They were dining in the true oriental style. A very large circular tray of tinned copper, placed upon a coarse wooden stool about a foot high, served as the table. In the center of this stood a large dish with a mountain of pillaw, composed of rice boiled and buttered, with small pieces of meat strewed through and upon it. This was the chief dish, although there were also other smaller dishes, both of meat and vegetables. Around this table ten persons, including the three governors-of Gaza, Hebron, and Jerusalem-were seated, or rather, squatted on their feet. Each had before him a plate of tinned copper and a wooden spoon. Some used the spoon without the plate; but the most preferred to eat with the fingers of the left hand, without either spoon or plate. When any one had finished, he immediately rose, and went and washed his hands by having water poured over them in an adjoining room. The vacant place at table was immediately filled by a new comer."
American Tract Society Bible Dictionary - Eating
The Jews would have considered themselves polluted by eating with people of another religion, or with any who were ceremonially unclean or disreputable-as with Samaritans, John 4:9 , publicans, Matthew 9:11 , or Gentiles, Acts 10:28 Galatians 2:12 . Eating together was an established token of mutual confidence and friendship, a pledge of friendly relations between families, which their children were expected to perpetuate. The rites of hospitality were held sacred; and to this day, among the Arabs, a fugitive is safe for the time, if he gains the shelter of even an enemy's tent. The abuse of hospitality was a great crime, Psalm 41:9 .
To "eat" a book, is to make its precepts, promises, and spirit one's own, Jeremiah 15:16 Ezekiel 3:1 John 4:14 Revelation 10:9 . So to eat Christ's flesh and drink his blood, is to receive him as a Savior, and by a living faith to be imbued with his truth, his Spirit, and his heavenly life, John 6:32-58 .
Morrish Bible Dictionary - Eating
Besides the common use of this word, it is employed symbolically for to 'consume, destroy:' they "eat up my people as they eat bread." Psalm 14:4 ; cf. Proverbs 30:14 ; Habakkuk 3:14 ; 2 Timothy 2:17 . Also for receiving, digesting, and delighting in God's words: "Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O Lord God of hosts." Jeremiah 15:16 . To eat together of the same bread or food is a token of friendship. Joshua 9:14 ; Psalm 41:9 ; Song of Solomon 5:1 ; John 13:18 ; and such an expression of intimacy is forbidden towards those walking disorderly. 1 Corinthians 5:11 . It is used to express the satisfaction of doing the work that is before the soul: the Lord said, "I have meat to eat that ye know not of." John 4:32 . Also to express appropriation to the eater of the death of Christ: "except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you." John 6:53 . (In John 6:51,53 there is eating for reception, φάγω; and in John 6:54,56,57 , eating as a present thing for the maintenance of life, τρώγω.) In theLord's Supper theChristian eats that which is a symbol of the body of Christ, Matthew 26:26 , and in eating he has communion with Christ's death. 1 Corinthians 10:16 .

Drink - ...
The phrases "drink from your river of delights" (Psalm 36:8 ) and "spring of living water" (Jeremiah 2:13 ) may well be sources of the title "river of the water of life" that flows from the temple of God, creating so many joys (Ezekiel 47:1-12 ; Revelation 22:1-2 ). This drinking of the water of life is parallel to Eating the bread of life (John 6:27,50-51 ). Drinking takes on a deeper significance when, often along with Eating, it expresses the fellowship and unity that exist among those who share a meal. ...
This symbolic meaning of fellowship also lies behind Luke 5:30 ; by Eating with sinners the disciples, like Jesus, stand on their side. Luke brings an important qualification by inserting the words "to repentance, " for true fellowship must be based on more than the mere physical act of drinking and Eating together (Luke 5:32 )
Blood - God expressly forbade the Eating of blood alone, or of blood mixed with the flesh of animals, as when any creature was suffocated, or strangled, or killed without drawing its blood from the carcass. And when the law was given to the children of Israel, we find the prohibition against the Eating of blood still more explicitly enforced, both upon Jews and Gentiles, in the following words, "Whatsoever man there be of the house of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among you, that eateth any manner of blood; I will even set my face against that soul that eateth blood, and will cut him off from among his people: for the life of the flesh is in the blood; and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul,"...
Leviticus 17:10-11 . There is little force in the remark, that the Eating of blood produces a ferocious disposition; for those nations that eat strangled things, or blood cooked with other ailments, do not exhibit more ferocity than others. The manner, too, in which Moses introduces the subject, is indicative that, though he was renewing a prohibition, he was not publishing a new doctrine; he does not teach his people that God had then given, or appointed, blood to make atonement; but he prohibits them from Eating it, because he had already made this appointment, without reference to time, and as a subject with which they were familiar

Swine - It was the sacrosanct character of swine that lay at the root of the prohibition in Leviticus 11:7 and Deuteronomy 14:8 ; and the Eating of swine’s flesh and offering of swine’s blood ( Isaiah 65:4 ; Isaiah 66:3 ; Isaiah 66:17 ) are clearly regarded as a sign of lapse into paganism

Nay, it is to the men off the wall, to let them know that (so far am I from wishing them not to hear), if they do not surrender they shall be reduced to Eating their own excrement. Scarcity of fuel necessitated the use of cows' dung and camels' dung, formed in cakes with straw added, for heating ovens as at this day; but to use human dung implied cruel necessity (Ezekiel 4:12)

It is to be partaken of by all who look for remission of sins by the death of Christ; we are not only to cherish that trust in our minds, and express it in our devotions, but we are to give an outward proof of our reliance upon the merits of his passion as the means of our salvation, by Eating that bread, and drinking that wine, which are typical representations of the body and blood of Christ, "who by his one oblation of himself once offered, made a full, perfect, and sufficient sacrifice, oblation, and satisfaction for the sins of the whole world

As for the Mosaic permission to the Jews of Eating the locusts, Leviticus 11:22 , however strange it may appear to the mere English reader, yet nothing is more certain than that several nations, both of Asia and Africa, anciently used these insects for food; and that they are still eaten in the east to this day

The prohibition of Eating the fat of sacrificial animals and the blood of any animal reminded Israel that blood sacrifice reconciles sinful/unclean people with a holy God (Leviticus 7:22-27 ; 17:11 ). Other laws, by creating distinctive customs (even where such customs were without any inherent moral value, as in Leviticus 18:19 ), nonetheless inculcated Israel with the concept of "holiness" and served as "object lessons, " creating in Israel a sense of self-identity as a "separated" people. Eating meat torn by wild beasts not only defiled ritually, but dehumanized, reducing people to the level of scavenger dogs (Exodus 22:31 ). Certain unclean animals are known to transfer diseases to humans: the pig bears trichinosis; the hare, tularemia; carrion-eating birds, various diseases.

Food - Now it is given accompanied by a prohibition against Eating flesh with the blood, which is the life, left in it. The cutting of flesh, with the blood, from the living animal (as has been practiced in Africa), and the Eating of blood either apart from or in the flesh, were prohibited, because "the soul (nephesh ) of the flesh is in the blood, and I (Jehovah) have ordained it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls; for it is the blood which makes atonement by means of the soul" (Leviticus 17:11-12)

Food Offered to Idols - ...
The final occurrences of this term are in Revelation 2:14 ,Revelation 2:14,2:20 , where in addition to the Eating of food offered to idols two of the seven churches are scolded for idolatry and moral failure
Murmur, Murmuring - ’ There is some uncertainty as to what precisely is here meant: whether the new teaching of life through death (Westcott); the paradoxical nature of the words just spoken by Jesus, the need of Eating His flesh and drinking His blood (Godet); His claim to have come down from heaven (Lampe and others); the apparent pride with which He connected the salvation of the world with His own Person (Tholuck, Hengstenberg); or the bloody death of the Messiah (de Wette, Meyer)

Ephesus - These people encouraged Christians to demonstrate their freedom by Eating food that had been offered to idols and by engaging in sexual immorality (Revelation 2:2; Revelation 2:6; cf
Last Supper - When we approach the sacred records, we find that the first three Evangelists so express themselves, that, in the opinion of some, they represent our Lord as Eating the Paschal Supper with His disciples on the night of His betrayal. ]'>[8] Now the Passover was slain late in the afternoon of the 14th Nisan, and some hours earlier leaven was put out of the houses, in preparation for the ‘days of unleavened bread,’ which, strictly speaking, began with the Eating of the lamb in the early hours of 15th Nisan. The Saturday was the ‘first day of unleavened bread’ (for the Eating of unleavened bread began legally with the Paschal meal),† Animals - Some of the earliest drawings available depict goats Eating on trees. While Canaanite pagans kept herds of swine, the Mosaic law classified this animal as “unclean” and thus forbade the Eating of its flesh (Leviticus 11:7 ; Deuteronomy 14:8 ). Isaiah condemned the Eating of swine, dogs, and mice (Isaiah 65:4 ; Isaiah 66:3 ,Isaiah 66:3,66:17 ). Identification as a hippopotamus is based on the description in Job 40:1 of its size and strength, where it lived, and its manner of Eating. JACKAL The jackal is a flesh-eating animal that resembles a fox. Isaiah illustrated the serene peace of God's kingdom as creating the seemingly impossible occurrence of a leopard lying down with the goat (Isaiah 11:6 ). The Mosaic prohibition against Eating rodents (Leviticus 11:29 ) reveals their presence in the Holy Land
Capital Punishment - Yet what about other commands in Genesis 9:1 ? What about the prohibition against Eating meat with blood in it (Genesis 9:4 ), or the execution of animals who kill humans (Genesis 9:5 ; compare 1618168636_46 ). Has the Lord spoken forever against Eating rare meat and for executing killer animals? Is it sound biblical interpretation if we interpret “by man shall his blood be shed” as a divine command for capital punishment yet consistently ignore the other commands in the context in which it is found?...
How do we explain the Lord's protection of Cain in Genesis 4:15 where a “mark” was placed on him to fend off self-appointed executioners? God's grace spared the original first-degree murderer
Euphrates - The drying up of Babylon's waters answers to the ten kings' stripping, Eating, and burning the whore, which is now being enacted in many European countries (Revelation 16:12)

Noah - ...
Noah is called a "preacher of righteousness," 2 Peter 2:5 , but another scripture shows that his preparing the ark and his preaching had no effect: "they were Eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and knew not until the flood came, and took them all away
Noah - ...
Noah is called a "preacher of righteousness," 2 Peter 2:5 , but another scripture shows that his preparing the ark and his preaching had no effect: "they were Eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and knew not until the flood came, and took them all away
Prayer - In Ephesians 6:18 1 Thessalonians 5:17 1 Timothy 2:8 , Paul directs that believers should pray in all places and at all times, lifting up pure hands towards heaven, and blessing God for all things, whether in Eating, drinking, or what ever they do; and that every thing be done to the glory of God, 1 Corinthians 10:31
Holy Day - In any case, it is significant that ‘eating’ is closely conjoined with the observance of the ‘day’; and whether the day were feast or fast or Sabbath, the principles inculcated by St. The day in itself, like the Eating, is indifferent, and therefore the Christian is free to observe it or not according as the spirit of Christian brotherhood and a regard for the unity and peace of the Church may dictate. ‘Let no man judge you on the basis of Eating and drinking, or in the matter of a feast or a new moon or a Sabbath
Communion - Robertson Smith started the theory that the origin of all sacrifice lies in the idea of a sacramental communion between the members of a tribe and the tribal deity, which is realized by the common Eating of the flesh of the sacrifice and the drinking of its blood. When he says that the Jews by Eating the sacrifices have communion with the altar, he means spiritual communion with God whose representative is the altar (note that the phrase ‘communion with God’ is avoided-a true mark of Rabbinism); and when he says that to partake of a supper connected with a heathen sacrifice brings men into communion with demons, he does not accept the popular idea that the food itself was quasi-infected by demonic influence (he declares formally that to eat such flesh unconsciously does not harm a Christian); but he says; ‘ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of devils: ye cannot partake of the table of the Lord and of the table of devils,’ because partaking of the table constitutes a spiritual and moral communion which is exclusive in its effect
Sodom - Luke alone adds, ‘In like manner as it came to pass in the days of Lot; they were Eating, drinking, buying, selling, planting, building; but in the day that Lot went out from Sodom, he rained [7] fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed (them) all
Courage - ), His disregard of, or opposition to, religious practices which had been invested with the sanctity of Divine law, and the performance of which was the hall-mark of righteousness (Matthew 9:14; Matthew 12:1; Matthew 12:9, Mark 2:18-22; Mark 7:1, Luke 3:33; 1618168636_66), His defiance of social and religious caste in receiving sinners and Eating with them were the moral utterances of a courageous righteousness and love (Matthew 9:10, Luke 15:2)
Blood - ” The high value of life as a gift of God led to the prohibition against Eating “blood”: “It shall be a perpetual statute for your generations throughout all your dwellings, that ye eat neither fat nor blood” ( Abomination, Abomination of Desolation - To' ebah , “offensive, detestable,” the most common word for abominable, occurring 117 times to refer to worship, cultural and moral practices which offend such as homosexuality (Leviticus 18:22 ), Egyptians' Eating with foreigners (Genesis 43:22 ), and particularly foreign gods (Ezekiel 6:11 )
Rejoice - In 1 Kings 4:20 the reign of Solomon is summarized as follows: “Judah and Israel were many, as the sand which is by the sea in multitude, Eating and drinking, and making merry
Power - In the Old Testament it is recognized that by Eating one gains “strength” ( Hospitality - As we were at the table, there came by a stranger, wearing a whit turban, who after have saluted the company, sat himself down to the table without ceremony, ate with us during some time, and then went away, repeating several times the name of God. " This reminds us of the guests of Abraham, Genesis 18:1-33 , of the conduct of Job, Job 31:17 , and of the frankness with which the apostles of Christ were to enter into a man's house after a salutation, and there to continue "eating and drinking such things as were set before them," Luke 10:7
Occupation (2) - If Eating and drinking could contribute to the glory of God (1 Corinthians 10:31), then all the occupations which provided food and drink could be pursued in the same spirit
Judge Judging (Ethical) - Colossians 2:16, where the false teaching which infected the Colossian Church is made the subject of warning, Eating and drinking being, according to the Apostle, mere shadows of the reality, and therefore not matters on which a judgment should be based-‘Let no man take you to task in Eating and in drinking’: scrupulous ritual and asceticism are a return to an order of life which the gospel has rendered obsolete
Bosom - In the time of Christ it was customary at a set feast to recline on a divan or couch, with the feet stretched out behind, the left arm supported on a cushion, and the right hand free for Eating. It could not well have reached to the other’s bosom in the strict sense of the word, for this would have interfered with his freedom and comfort in Eating and drinking
Exodus - Hence emphasis is laid, not on the blood-sprinkling, but on the Eating, which was the perpetual feature. In connexion with the Passover ( Exodus 12:21-27 ), blood-sprinkling, not Eating, is insisted on
Doubt - Doubt or uncertainty over a questionable action or a "gray area" of the Christian life (here it is Eating idol-meat) is condemned because the action does not arise out of faith toward God
Uncleanness - It also helped to keep the people physically healthy, by preventing them from Eating harmful foods, encouraging personal hygiene and limiting the spread of disease
Fall of Man - This positive law he broke by Eating the forbidden fruit; first the woman, then the man: and thus the condition or law of the covenant being broken, the covenant itself was broken
Fall - Specifically: The first apostasy; the act of our first parents in Eating the forbidden fruit; also, the apostasy of the rebellious angels
Obedience - ...
God's clear instructions to the very first human beings in the garden of Eden was to refrain from Eating the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil (Genesis 2:16 )
Joshua - When Moses ascended Mount Sinai to receive the law of the Lord, and remained there forty days and forty nights without Eating or drinking, Joshua remained with him, though, in all probability, not in the same place, nor with the same abstinence, Exodus 24:13 ; Exodus 32:17
Blood - The Hebrews of Old Testament times were prohibited from Eating blood. The next verse shows that Eating “blood and flesh” is powerful metaphorical language for sharing in the life that Jesus bestows—”so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me” (John 6:57 )
Ecclesiastes, the Book of - , was mistaken as recommending the Epicurean sensuality against which Paul (Ecclesiastes 5:1) protests, and was made an objection to the book; but the Eating and drinking recommended is that associated with labor, not idleness; with pious "fear of God," not sensual ignoring of the future Judge; the cheerful, contented "eating and drinking" which characterized Judah and Israel under Solomon (1 Kings 4:20), and under Josiah (Jeremiah 22:15, "Did not thy father (Josiah) eat and drink, and do judgment and justice, and then it was well with him?")...
So Nehemiah enjoins (Nehemiah 2:6)
Jonathan - Saul, by his rash curse on any who should eat that day until the foe should be overthrown, retarded his own aim through weakening his people, involved them in violating the law by flying ravenously on the spoil at evening and Eating flesh with the blood, and bound himself to put to death for tasting honey, and so receiving refreshment, his own beloved son, from which he was rescued only by the people's interposition. Jonathan's pious and filial self devotion appears in his readiness (like Isaac) to die at his father's command because of the rash adjuration of the latter; type of the Son of God, volunteering to die for us because Adam by Eating the forbidden fruit had his "eyes opened" (Genesis 3; 1 Samuel 14:27; 1 Samuel 14:43); again in his continuing to the last faithful to Saul, though his father had attempted his life, and though he knew that his father's kingdom was doomed to fall and David to succeed
Law (2) - Mark could be accepted as chronological, the first collision of Jesus with the representatives of the tradition was occasioned by His Eating with publicans and sinners at the house of Levi (Mark 2:15 ff. He came neither Eating nor drinking, and this unsociable disposition called forth the charge that he had a devil. Jesus, on the other hand, was no aseetic; so little of an ascetic, in fact, that His enemies taxed Him with over-indulgence: ‘The Son of Man came Eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a gluttonous man and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners’ (Matthew 11:19). The criticism of the disciples rather than of Jesus has its parallel in the incident of the plucking of the ears of corn on the Sabbath and the disciples Eating with unwashed hands, and the temper of the Master was much freer than that of the timidly legalistic disciples. In John 2:6 we read of the six stone water-pots for the water of purification at the marriage in Cana; and the same Gospel tells us how the Jews purified themselves for the Passover (John 11:55), or took precautions against defilement which would disqualify them from Eating it (John 18:28). No mention is made here of any violation of the tradition on the part of Jesus Himself; though in Luke 11:38 we are told that the Pharisee, at whose house Jesus was Eating, was surprised that He neglected this ceremony
Body (2) - He was neither an ascetic nor a preacher of asceticism—‘the Son of Man came Eating and drinking’ (Matthew 11:18-19). We find Him Eating and drinking as a man (Luke 24:42), making use of the natural process of breathing (John 20:22), declaring to His disciples that He had flesh and bones (Luke 24:39), showing them His hands and His feet (Luke 24:40), and giving them the assurance that His body was the identical body which they had seen stretched upon the cross, by inviting the disciple who doubted, to put his finger into the print of the nails and thrust his hand into the wound in His side (John 20:27). With this symbolic use of the word ‘body’ many have sought to identify the words of the Lord in the Fourth Gospel about ‘eating the flesh’ of the Son of Man (John 6:53-63)
Passover (ii. in Relation to Lord's Supper). - But, since they had already stated with the utmost plainness that the meal to which He sat down with His disciples was an Eating of the Passover, it was quite unnecessary for them to describe it in detail, since all Passover suppers were exactly similar. ), or as to a sacrificial ‘eating of the god’ on the occasion of a harvest festival (see W. What, then, did the Eating of the Passover primarily mean for Jesus and His disciples?...
(a) In the first place, it was the memorial of a great historical deliverance—that redemption of Israel from her bondage in Egypt which was also her birth-hour as a nation (Exodus 12:3 ff
Sin - ...

Joy - The Pharisees and scribes had criticized Jesus for receiving sinners and Eating with them
Zacchaeus - ...
What a contrast to his joy, humility, and faith was the murmuring of the self-righteous bystanders, "He is gone to be guest with a sinner," self invited, not merely as before Eating with such by special invitation! (Luke 15:2; Luke 5:29-30) a further loving condescension
Lie - 22:26-27 the verb denotes the act of sleeping more than the lying down: “If thou at all take thy neighbor’s raiment to pledge, thou shalt deliver it unto him by that the sun goeth down … [5] shall he sleep?”...
Shâkab can also be used to mean “lodge” and thus refers to sleeping and Eating
Asceticism (2) - Luke’s expression, ‘in those days he did eat nothing’ (Luke 4:2), with which we may compare Christ’s own description of the life of John the Baptist, ‘John came neither Eating nor drinking’ (Matthew 11:18). ‘John came neither Eating nor drinking, and they say, He hath a devil. The Son of man came Eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous and a wine-bibber, a friend of publicans and sinners’ (Matthew 11:18-19, Luke 7:33-34). We have but to contrast the life of the Son of Man, who ‘came Eating and drinking,’ with that of such an one as St
Hopkinsians - Adam's act, in Eating the forbidden fruit, was not the act of his posterity; therefore they did not sin at the same time he did. Therefore Adam's act, in Eating the forbidden fruit, was not the cause, but only the occasion of his posterity's being sinners
Fall - The serpent seemed sure that Eating would produce equality not death. He was guilty of following the woman's sinful advice and Eating of the forbidden tree (Genesis 3:17 )
Discourse - To this class belong: the discourse on Forgiveness, with the parable of the Two Debtors, given at the house of Simon the Pharisee (Luke 7:36-50); the beginning of the discourse on Tradition (eating with unwashen hands), though later ‘he called the multitudes,’ ‘and the disciples came unto him’ (Matthew 15:1-20, Mark 7:1-20); the Denunciation of the Pharisees and Lawyers at the house of a chief Pharisee (Luke 11:37-54); the discourse at another Pharisee’s house, where He discussed Modesty, Giving Feasts, and spoke the parable of the Great Feast and Excuses (Luke 14:1-24); finally, the discourse at the house of Zaccbaeus, with the parable of the Pounds (Luke 19:1-27). Of these there are a great number and variety, spoken sometimes to great multitudes, sometimes to groups, but publicly: on Blasphemy (Matthew 12:22-37, Mark 3:19-30); on Signs (Matthew 12:38-45); latter part of discourse on Eating with Unwashen Hands, and Traditions (Matthew 15:1-20, Mark 7:1-23); on Signs again (Matthew 16:1-4, Mark 8:11-12); on Demons and Signs again (Luke 11:14-36); on Confession, Worldliness, Watchfulness (Luke 12); on Repentance, with parable of the Barren Fig-tree (1618168636_4); on the Good Shepherd (John 10:1-18); on His Messiahship and Relations with the Father (John 10:22-38); Sabbath Healing, parables of Mustard Seed and Leaven (Luke 13:10-21); on the Salvation of the Elect (Luke 13:23-30); Lament over Jerusalem (Luke 13:34-35); on Counting the Cost of Following Him (Luke 14:25-35); reproof of the Pharisees, with parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus (Luke 16:14-31); on the Coming of the Kingdom (Luke 17:20-37); on Prayer, with parables of the Importunate Widow, and of the Pharisee and Publican (Luke 18:1-14); the colloquies with His critics in the Temple, on His Authority, on the Tribute to Caesar, on the Resurrection, on the Great Commandment, on the Son of David (Matthew 21:23 to Matthew 22:46, Mark 11:27 to Mark 12:37, Luke 20); remarks on Belief and Unbelief (John 12:44-50)
Hopkinsians - ) Adam's act, in Eating the forbidden fruit, was not the act of his posterity; therefore they did not sin at the same time that he did. ) Therefore Adam's act, in Eating the forbidden fruit, was not the cause, but only the occasions of his posterity being sinners

Ass - The wild donkey was known for its braying and for Eating grass ( Job 6:5 )
Profane - Our blessed Lord, in the days of his flesh, walking through the cornfields, and his disciples Eating of the ears of corn on the Sabbath-day, were reproved by the pharisees for it
Fasting - ...
Once that the principle is acted on, "he that eateth eateth to the Lord, and he that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not" (Romans 14:6), and "meat commendeth us not to God, for neither if we eat are we the better, neither if we eat not are we the worse" (1 Corinthians 8:8), fasting and Eating are put in their true place, as means not ends
Eusebius of Alexandria, a Writer of Sermons - " He severely blames a layman who tastes food before the Liturgy is over, whether he communicates or not; but denounces those who communicate after Eating (as many do on Easter Day itself) as if guilty of a heinous sin
Law of Moses - ; but other things were wrong only because God had forbidden them, such as the command to abstain from Eating certain creatures called 'unclean
Supper - Jesus having fulfilled the law of Moses, to which in all things he submitted, by Eating the paschal supper with his disciples, proceeded after supper to institute a rite, which, to any person that reads the words of the institution without having formed a previous opinion upon the subject, will probably appear to have been intended by him as a memorial of that event which was to happen not many hours after
Sabbath - The joyous character of the Sabbath is reflected in, among other things, the Jewish tradition of Eating richly, which derives from its inclusion in the list of "festivals of the Lord" ( Leviticus 23 ) the prohibition of fasting, and the forbidding of outward expressions of grief and mourning. Jesus faces the accusation that his disciples have broken the Sabbath by picking grain and Eating (Matthew 12:1-8 )
Fall - Adam fell by Eating the forbidden fruit. Fall, or the fall, by way of distinction, the apostasy the act of our first parents in Eating the forbidden fruit also, the apostasy of the rebellious angels
Pharisees - So the Pharisee took all pains to know that his purchases had been duly tithed, and therefore shrank from "eating with" (Matthew 9:11) those whose food might not be so. Jesus, to confute the notion of its having moral value, did not wash before Eating (Luke 11:37-40)
Lucianus, a Famous Satirist - The passage contains one or two statements—that about the new Socrates, and the Eating forbidden food—which it is difficult to think strictly accurate. Thus he subsisted for some time; but at length, having done something contrary to their laws (I believe it was Eating food forbidden amongst them), he was reduced to want, and forced to retract his donation to the city, and to ask for his estate again, and issued a process in the name of the emperor to recover it; but the city sent messages to him commanding him to remain where he was, and be satisfied
Covenant - Probably the covenanting parties Eating together (which barah sometimes means) of the feast after the sacrifice entered into the idea; compare Genesis 31:46-47, Jacob and Laban
Remnant - Objects or people may be separated from a larger group by selection, assignment, consumption (eating food), or by destruction
Loneliness - (c) His conduct was social enough—as distinet from that of John and of the Essenes—to give rise to the slanders about ‘a gluttonous man and a winebibber’ (Matthew 11:19, Luke 7:34); He went to the marriage at Cana (John 2:1); He was found at the feast in Simon’s house (Matthew 26:6, Mark 14:3, also Luke 7:36); with Matthew (Matthew 9:10, Luke 5:29), and Zacehaeus (Luke 19:6); and contrasted Himself with John as one who ‘comes Eating and drinking’ (Matthew 11:19, Luke 7:34)
Matthew (2) - Certain scribes and Pharisees had been spectators of the feast, and they asked the disciples concerning Jesus’ Eating and drinking with sinners; and Jesus Himself, answering them, declared that He had not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance
Elkesai, Elkesaites - , and of the Eating of flesh
Death - After all, death was apparently part of the world of nature before Adam sinned – leaves fell off trees, fruit was picked, and animals lived by Eating other forms of life (Genesis 2:15-16; Genesis 3:1)
Lord's Supper (ii) - An act of Eating the flesh and drinking the blood of Christ is anticipated as the way in which His disciples will participate in the life which is in Him. It must be remembered that (α) the idea of communion with God by means of a sacred meal was familiar, as in many religious rites outside Judaism, so also in the literature and the religion which were well known to the disciples, as shown in the Levitical peace-offerings with the threefold division into the portion for God, the portion for the priest, and the portion for the worshipper (Leviticus 3; 1618168636_83); the bread and wine brought forth by Melchizedek, the ‘priest of God Most High’ (Genesis 14:18); the Eating of the lamb in the Passover (Exodus 12); the meal of Moses and Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, and seventy of the elders in the presence of God (Exodus 24:1-11); the prophecy by Isaiah of the feast to be made by the Lord of hosts (Isaiah 25:6); and the invitations to a meal evidently of profound spiritual significance given by the personified ‘Wisdom’ of the Sapiential books (Proverbs 9:1-5, Sirach 24:19-21). (β) This idea had been emphasized in our Lord’s ministry in the Feeding of the Five thousand and the subsequent discourse, and the disciples had been taught that in Eating His flesh and drinking His blood they would have participation in Divine life (John 6:53-57). (δ) The close connexion of the words ‘The Spirit is the life-giver; the flesh profiteth nothing’ (John 6:63) with the teaching about Eating the flesh of the Son of Man and drinking His blood, suggests that in the rite which our Lord was instituting there would be the operation of the Holy Ghost and a work of spiritual efficacy
Eucharist - 22 As they were Eating, he took bread, and when he had blessed, he brake it, and gave to them, and said. 26 As they were Eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and brake it; and he gave to the disciples, and said, Take, eat: this is my body. Clearly, however, the phrase refers to the whole Eucharistic action, not to the particular acts of Eating and drinking, the latter of which is differentiated from it in 1 Corinthians 11:26
Life - The life-blood of the sacrifice was substituted for the life-blood of the worshiper, although inadequate and creating a longing for the perfect sacrifice of Christ (Psalm 49:7-9 ; Hebrews 10:1-4 ). " When Eve and Adam listened to the tempter and disobeyed the commandment, Eating the fruit of the forbidden tree, they brought a curse upon themselves (Genesis 3:16-19 ), their descendants (Romans 5:12-14 ; 1 Corinthians 15:21-22 ), and upon all creation (Genesis 3:17 ; Romans 8:19-22 ). This life is more important than Eating, drinking, and clothes (Matthew 6:25 ; Luke 12:22-33 ), and more valuable than physical wholeness and health
Lord's Supper, the - This is because partakers of the Eucharist enjoy a communion with him in the Eating of his living flesh (vivified by the Spirit) and the drinking of his blood, which was not possible before his glorification to the Father's right hand.

Manna - Each was to gather according to his Eating, an omer apiece for each in his tent, a command testing their obedience, in which some failed, gathering more but gaining nought by it, for however much he gathered, on measuring it in his tent he found he had only as much as he needed for his family; type of Christian charity, which is to make the superfluity of some supply the needs of others
Resurrection of Jesus Christ - The long ending of Mark records several other appearances of Jesus: to Mary Magdalene (see John 20:11-18 ); to two walking in the country (see Luke 24:13-32 ); to the eleven as they were Eating (see Luke 24:36-43 )

Lord's Supper - The Eating of the bread and drinking of the wine being always connected in Christ's example, they ought never to be separated: wherever one is given, the other should not be withheld
Right - It is right for every man to choose his own time for Eating or exercise
Lord's Supper. (i.) - Further, there is no mention in the Synoptic narrative of their Eating the lamb (Jewish Encyc. —Mark 14:22-26, Matthew 26:26-30, Luke 22:15-20, 1 Corinthians 11:23-26 :...

Adam (1) - A second is Genesis 2:4-4:26, treating in a more detailed way what was summarily given as to man (Genesis 1), his innocence, first sin, and immediate posterity. Any fruit tree (some have supposed, from Egyptian representations still extant, the pomegranate) would suffice as a test of obedience or disobedience, by the Eating of which the knowledge of evil as well as of good would result. Man might have attained this knowledge by making his will one with God's, in not Eating it; he then would have attained to a Godlike knowledge of good and evil, and would have exercised true liberty in conformity with his likeness, to God
Naaman - Day and night; in the council-chamber and in the field; Eating and drinking; waking and sleeping, Naaman was a leper. What do you say to humble yourself for once, and to try the thing that has hitherto most exasperated you to be tied down to it? All the chances are that your salvation lies out in the direction of far more secret prayer, far more self-denial, far less Eating and drinking, far less talking, and far more submission of your opinions and habits of life to other men
Sacrifices in the Old Testament - Deliberate crimes were not so expiable; among these were reckoned the omission of circumcision, the desecration of the Sabbath, blasphemy, failure to celebrate the pasch, Eating of blood, working or failure to fast on the Day of Atonement
Old Testament, Sacrifices in the - Deliberate crimes were not so expiable; among these were reckoned the omission of circumcision, the desecration of the Sabbath, blasphemy, failure to celebrate the pasch, Eating of blood, working or failure to fast on the Day of Atonement
Blood - Now that Christ's one, and only true, sacrifice has superseded animal sacrifices, the prohibition against Eating blood ceases, the decree in Acts 15 being but temporary, not to offend existing Jewish prejudices needlessly
Leviticus - Aaron's "holding his peace" under the stroke is a marvelous exhibition of grace; yet his not Eating the sin offering in the holy place shows his keen paternal anguish which excused his violation of the letter of the law in Moses' judgment
Abstain, Abstinence - Even in the pristine garden of Eden God told Adam to abstain from Eating the fruit of a certain tree
Man - The positive law which God gave him he broke, by Eating the forbidden fruit
Good - ” This reference also suggests that, by Eating this fruit, man attempted to determine for himself what “good” and evil are
Corinthians - Instead of Eating together, and refreshing their poor brethren out of that which they had brought with them, each one, as he came, ate his own, without waiting for any one else, and feasted often to excess, while the needy was fasting, 1 Corinthians 11:17
Zabii - Some of their practices were loathsome and disgustful; such as Eating blood, believing it to be the food of demons, &c. The third consists in human gestures and actions, as leaping, clapping the hands, shouting, laughing, lying down, or stretching at full length upon the ground, burning particular things, raising a smoke, and, lastly, repeating certain intelligible or unintelligible words. "That the Persians," says Hyde, "were formerly Sabians or Zabii, is rendered probable by Ibn Phacreddin Angjou, a Persian, who, in his book ‘Pharhangh Gjihanghiri,' treating of the Persians descended from Shem, says in the preface, ‘Their religion, at that time, was Zabianism; but at length they became magi, and built fire temples
Locust - These were no sooner hatched, in June, than each of the broods collected itself into a compact body of a furlong or more square, and marching afterwards in a direct line towards the sea, they let nothing escape them; Eating up every thing that was green and juicy, not only the lesser kinds of vegetables, but the vine likewise, the fig-tree, the pomegranate, the palm, and the apple-tree, even all the trees of the field, Joel 1:12 ; in doing which, kept their ranks like men of war, climbing over, as they advanced, every tree or wall that was in their way; nay, they entered into our very houses and bedchambers like thieves
Idol, Idolatry - ...
Another consideration is that Eating together signifies fellowship
Passover - after the day of holy convocation) to be presented before Eating bread or parched grain in the promised land (Joshua 5:11). The purging away of leaven from the house, and the not Eating leavened bread, is emphatically enforced under penalty of cutting off (Exodus 12:15-20; Exodus 13:7). Also John 18:28, the rulers "went not into the judgment hall, lest they should be defiled, but that they might eat the Passover," means that they might go on keeping the Passover, or that they might eat it even yet, though having suffered their proceedings against Christ to prevent their Eating it before, or especially that they might eat the chagigah (Deuteronomy 16:2; 2 Chronicles 35:7-9); the Passover might be eaten by those not yet cleansed (2 Chronicles 30:17), but not so the chagigah
Offence (2) - And in John 6:61 we find disciples put out, as it were, by the hard sayings about Eating the flesh of the Son of Man, and drinking His blood: it is almost more than they can stand, and Jesus asks τοῦτο ὑμᾶς σκανδαλίζει; ‘Doth this cause you to stumble?’ Almost anything in Jesus may become a ground of stumbling—the demands He makes, the sacrifices which fidelity to Him entails, His disappointment of our expectations, the paradoxical and apparently impossible elements of His teaching. They know, for example, that an idol is nothing in the world, and that is enough to answer all questions about their relation to idolatry—about buying and Eating meat which had been sacrificed in a pagan temple, about attending a pagan friend’s feast in the temple, and so forth. They know that the earth is the Lord’s, and all that it contains; and that is enough to answer all questions about Eating and drinking
Deuteronomy, the Book of - ...
The second passage is Deuteronomy 28, where he declares more fully than in Leviticus 26 what evils should overtake Israel in the event of their disobedience, with such specific particularity that the Spirit in him must be not declaring contingencies, but foretelling the penal results of their sin which have since so literally come to pass; their becoming "a byword among all nations where the Lord has led them"; their being besieged by "a nation of a fierce countenance, until their high walls wherein they trusted came down"; their "eating the fruit of their own body, the flesh of their sons and daughters, in the straitness of the siege, and the eye of the tender and delicate woman being evil toward the husband of her bosom and toward her child which she shall eat for want of all things secretly in the siege"; their dispersion so as to "find no ease, and the sole of their foot to have no rest among the nations," but to have "a trembling heart, failing of eyes, and sorrow of mind, their life hanging in doubt, in fear day and night, and having none assurance of life"; "the whole land (Deuteronomy 29:23) not sown, nor bearing, nor having grass. The relaxation granted in Deuteronomy 12:15 as to killing in all their gates, whereas in Leviticus 17:3-4, the victim even for ordinary Eating must be killed at the door of the tabernacle, is precisely what we might expect when Israel was on the verge of entering Canaan, which they were at the time of the delivering of Deuteronomy. ); in repeating the fact to the people (Deuteronomy 1:9, etc
Birds - The term orneon is used in Revelation to describe the completeness of Babylon's destruction ( Revelation 18:2 ) and to refer to flesh-eating fowl (Revelation 19:17 , Revelation 19:21 ). The ostrich is listed as unclean (Leviticus 11:16 ; Deuteronomy 14:15 ), probably because of its Eating habits
Common Life - In regard to the question of washing the hands before Eating, He comes into open conflict with the Pharisees, upbraiding their hypocrisy, and contending that defilement comes not from external things, but from within the heart (Matthew 15:1-20, Mark 7:1-23). The Son of man came Eating and drinking, with no ascetic gloom; came to live in, and thus to sanctify, the whole round of common life
Esau - Isaac too erred through carnal partiality, which he sought to stimulate by Eating his favorite's venison, determining to give to Esau the blessing in spite of the original divine intimation, "the elder shall serve the younger," and in spite of Esau's actual sale of the birthright to Jacob, and though Esau had shown his unworthiness of it by taking when he was forty years of age two Hittite wives from among the corrupt Canaanites, to his father's and mother's grief
Furniture - We associate them with basic human activities such as sleeping, sitting, Eating, and socializing
Waterpot - The stone waterpots (כְּלֵי אֲבָנִים in Rabbinic writings) were placed outside the reception-room, for the washing of the hands before and after Eating, as well as of the vessels used (cf

House (2) - Then the domestic life of the Oriental requires little beyond a sheltered place for sleeping and a quiet place for Eating
Games - " Ye gain no end, he implies to the Corinthians, in your Eating idol meats
Agriculture - When ripe, the grapes were picked for Eating fresh (Isaiah 65:21 ), drying in the sun as raisins (1 Samuel 30:12 ), or crushed for wine
Food - ...
Apart from considering others, Christians must discipline their Eating and drinking habits for their own sake
Saul - His scrupulosity because the people flew upon the spoil, Eating the animals with the blood (1 Samuel 14:32-35), contrasts with true conscientiousness which was wanting in him at Gilgal (1 Samuel 13). Jonathan's unconscious violation of Saul's adjuration, by Eating honey which revived him (1 Samuel 13:27-29, "enlightened his eyes," Psalms 13:3), was the occasion of Saul again taking lightly God's name to witness that Jonathan should die (contrast Exodus 20:7). " "What meaneth then tills bleating of the sheep?" Saul lays on the people the disobedience, and takes to himself with them the merit of the obedience: "they have brought them from the Amalekites, for the people spared the best of the sheep
Body - This means that sexuality differs from Eating and drinking, which satisfy only the requirements of the stomach
Heathen - Peter in the presence of the congregation at Antioch (Galatians 2:14) was justly aimed against the moral inconsistency of his first Eating with the Gentile converts (σύ … ἐθνικῶς ζῇς; cf
Barnabas - In Paul’s account of the trouble with Peter at Antioch over the Eating with Gentiles (Galatians 2:11-14), his co-worker is represented as taking part with his opponents
Feeding the Multitudes - All agree that a vast multitude followed them to their place of resort, thus defeating their purpose, and that it was the disciples who called the attention of Jesus to the needs of the people. The question of Jesus concerning the number of loaves, the remarkable circumstance that a second time the disciples had so little food with them, the seating of the people on the ground, the distribution to the Twelve for redistribution among the multitude, the Eating until they were filled, the gathering of the broken pieces into baskets, are suspiciously like the feeding of the 5000
Egypt - Locusts come Eating all before them, and are carried away by the wind as suddenly as they come. The eighth, the locusts Eating every tree, attacked what the Egyptians so prized that Egypt was among other titles called "the land of the sycamore. The Israelites' Eating, dancing, singing, and stripping themselves at the calf feast, were according to Egyptian usage (Exodus 32:5-25)
Passover - ‘Killing’ and ‘eating’ τὸ πάσχα are just as often spoken of as ‘keeping’ τὸ πάσχα. The festival commences with a sanctification; then comes the first cup of wine; the aphiḳomen (half a maẓẓah, which is reserved to be eaten at the close) is set aside; the question is asked, ‘Why is this night distinguished from all other nights?’ to which a long response is given; this is followed by the first part of Hallel (Psalms 113, 114), the second cup of wine, washing of the hands; the unleavened bread (maẓẓôth) is eaten with bitter herbs (horse-radish); next comes Hillel’s ceremony (eating a piece of horse-radish placed between two pieces of unleavened bread); the aphiḳomen is eaten, grape after meals is said with considerable additions; then there is the third cup of wine and the opening of the door; Hallel is resumed (Psalms 115-118); Psalms 136 is recited with large expansions, followed by the fourth cup of wine and prayer for the Divine acceptance of the service; ‘Adir hu’, an impassioned song praying for the rebuilding of the Temple, brings all to a close. And why trouble, when even the fact that the Lord instituted some memorial observance for His disciples is itself open to question? Wilder extremists see in the Supper, not a simple memorial instituted naturally by Jesus and suggested by the circumstances of the time, but the influence of mystery-religions and strange cults with their Eating and drinking of a god
Clean And Unclean - Finally, the abstinence from Eating the sinew of the thigh, which in Genesis 32:32 is explained by a reference to the story of Jacob, may have originated in the idea that the thigh was the centre of the reproductive functions. The same idea would probably cause the abstinence from Eating beasts of prey, carrion birds, and animals which had died without being bled ( Ezekiel 4:14 , Exodus 22:31 , Leviticus 17:15 ; Leviticus 22:3 )
Obsolete or Obscure Words in the English av Bible - ...
Fritting, Leviticus 13:51—corroding; Eating as a moth. ...
Tabering, Nahum 2:7—beating, as on a taber-drum
Lord's Supper - ...
The Holy Communion was at first regularly connected with these lovefeasts; "the breaking of bread," with the customary thanksgiving blessing of the master of the feast, referred not to the eucharist consecration but to the lovefeast, as Acts 27:35 proves, where the eucharist is out of the question, and where simply as a devout Jew Paul gave thanks before "breaking bread" and Eating
Typology - He rehearsed the experiences of the people of Israel in the Exodus and in their forty years in the desert: the destruction of Pharaoh's army in the sea (Exodus 14-15 ); the Eating of manna (Exodus 16:1 ); their conduct when thirsty—Rephidim—striking the rock (Exodus 17:1 ); Kadesh—speaking to the rock (Numbers 20:1 ); sin of the gold calf (Exodus 32:1 ); fornication with the daughters of Moab at Baal of Peor (Numbers 25:1 ); murmuring when going from Mount Hor around the land of Edom (Numbers 21:1 )
Timothy, the First Epistle to - ...
Not knowing the true use of "the law" (1 Timothy 1:7-8) the false teachers "put away good conscience," as well as "the faith" (1 Timothy 1:19; 1 Timothy 4:2), "spoke lies in hypocrisy, corrupt in mind," regarded "piety as a means of gain" (1 Timothy 6:5; Titus 1:11); "overthrew the faith" by heresies "eating as a canker, saying the resurrection is past, leading captive silly women, ever learning yet never knowing the truth, reprobate as Jannes and Jambres (2 Timothy 3:6-8), defiled, unbelieving, professing to know God but in works denying Him, abominable, disobedient, reprobate" (Titus 1:15-16)
Fall - ...
(3) What, then, is meant by the ‘knowledge of good and evil,’ which was acquired by Eating of the tree? Does it mean simply an enlargement of experience such as the transition from childhood to maturity naturally brings with it, and of which the feeling of shame (Genesis 3:7 ) is the significant index? Or is it, as has generally been held, the experimental knowledge of moral distinctions, the awaking of the conscience, the faculty of discerning between right and wrong? It is very difficult to say which of these interpretations expresses the thought in the mind of the writer
Law, Ten Commandments, Torah - The Pharisees accused Jesus and His disciples of not following the law with regard to “unclean” things (Matthew 15:1-20 ), and they accused Him of Eating with tax-gatherers and sinners (Matthew 9:11 )
Liberty (2) - In vain He likens the liberty of the Spirit to the wind ‘that bloweth where it listeth’ (John 3:8); few can understand the variety of the workings of the Divine Spirit in man, Wisdom only being justified by ‘all her children’ (Mark 11:19, Luke 7:35), to the confusion often of those who cannot comprehend a John the Baptist abstaining and the Son of man ‘eating and drinking
Jesus Christ - Early in the third year of his ministry, Jesus disputed with the Pharisees about Eating with unwashed hands, and went toward the northwest, healed the daughter of the Syrophœnician woman, and then passed around to Decapolis, where he wrought many miracles and fed 4000
Bread - But their best sort of bread they bake, either by heating an oven, or a large pitcher full of little smooth shining flints, upon which they lay the dough, spread out in the form of a thin broad cake. On the fourteenth of Nisan, at eleven o'clock, they burn the common bread, to show that the prohibition of Eating leavened bread is then commenced; and this action is attended with words, whereby the master of the house declares that he has no longer any thing leavened in his keeping; that, at least, he believes so
Animal - The manner, too, in which Moses introduces the subject is indicative that, although he was renewing a prohibition, he was not publishing a "new doctrine;" he does not teach his people that God had then given, or appointed, blood to make atonement; but he prohibits them from Eating it, because he had made this appointment, without reference to time, and as a subject with which they were familiar
Covenant - This promise was the foundation of that transaction which Almighty God, in treating with Abraham, condescends to call "my covenant with thee," and which, upon this authority, has received in theology the name of the Abrahamic covenant. ...

Lamentations - ...
The second elegy (Lamentations 2) dwells on the city's destruction, her breach through which like a sea the foe poured in, the famine, the women Eating their little children (fulfilling Deuteronomy 28:53), the priest and prophet slain in the sanctuary, the king and princes among the Gentiles, the law no more, the past vanity of the prophets forbearing to discover Zion's iniquity, retributively punished by the present absence of vision from Jehovah (Lamentations 2:9; Lamentations 2:14). ...
The gleams of believing and assured hope break forth at the close, so that there is a clear progress from the almost unrelieved gloom of the beginning (Lamentations 1:2; Lamentations 1:9; Lamentations 1:17; Lamentations 1:21); it recognizes Jehovah's (Lord in capitals) sovereignty in punishing, by repeating seven times the name Adonai (Lord in small letters): Lamentations 3:22-31; Lamentations 3:33; Lamentations 4:21-22; Lamentations 5:19-22
Sacrifice - The characteristic ceremony in the peace offering was the Eating of the flesh by the sacrificer

Vessels And Utensils - Cooking pots required a clay tempered with various grit materials to withstand the expansion of extreme heating and cooling. ...
Eating utensils are not usually found in excavations and were probably made of wood
Love-Feast - -We now come to the account given in 1 Corinthians 11:18-34 of the Eucharist at Corinth: ‘When ye assemble yourselves together, it is not possible to eat the Lord’s supper: for in your Eating each one taketh before other his own supper; and one is hungry, and another is drunken.

Covenant - This covenant was broken by Adam's Eating of the forbidden fruit, whereby he and his posterity were all subject to ruin, Genesis 3:1-24 : Romans 5:12 ; Romans 5:19 ; and without the intervention of the divine grace and mercy, would have been lost for ever, Romans 3:23
Elisha - In a time of dearth (2 Kings 4:38), perhaps the same as that in 2 Kings 8:1-2, one of the sons of the prophets brought in a lap full of gourds or wild cucumbers, off a plant like a wild vine, the only food to be had; the effect in Eating was such that one exclaimed, "There is death in the pot. Israel was reduced to the last extremities of famine, unparalleled until the Roman siege of Jerusalem, a woman Eating her own son, fulfilling the curse (Leviticus 26:29; Deuteronomy 28:53-57)
Offerings And Sacrifices - Aside from the prohibition against Eating blood or fat in verses 22-27, there are two major sections here. The first deals with the various kinds of worship rationale associated with the peace offering (thanksgiving, votive, or freewill) and rules for Eating the meat that went to the offerers (vv. The purpose of the guilt offering was to make atonement for "desecration" of "sancta, " that is, the mishandling of holy (sacred) things by treating them as if they were common rather than holy
Boyhood of Jesus - Yet it must be admitted, in favour of a contrary view, that Peter at least was guided by some rules which went beyond those of the OT, and which came from the scribes, Pharisees, and Rabbis (Acts 10:28; Galatians 2:12—eating with non-Jews). For instance, the Eating of the lamb in a recumbent instead of a standing posture was a change (Exodus 12:11, 1 Samuel 1:9 ‘rose up,’ Luke 22:14-15 etc
Balaam - (Hebrew balam ) "not of the people" (Israel), a "foreigner"; else bilam , "the destroyer of the people," corresponding to the Greek Νicolaos , "conqueror of the people" (Revelation 2:14-15), namely, by having seduced them to fornication with the Moabite women (Numbers 25), just as the Nicolaitanes sanctioned the Eating of things sacrificed to idols and fornication

Festivals - The feast was concluded by the Eating of communal meals to which the poor, the stranger, and the Levites were invited
Hospitality - The stranger Eating with a clansman becomes ‘kinsman’ to all the members of the clan, as regards ‘the fundamental rights and duties that turn on the sanctity of kindred blood’ (Wellhausen, Reste Arab
Animals - Christ's work of creating, sustaining, and reconciling all things also includes the animal world (Colossians 1:16-17 ). Vegetarianism is neither commanded nor forbidden and it is clear that Paul considered meat-eating to be acceptable for Christians (Romans 14:1-4 ; 1 Chronicles 29:11)
Leviticus - ]'>[5] , which required all sacrifices to be brought to the Jerusalem Temple as the only sanctuary, permitted all animals to be freely slaughtered, but forbade the Eating of fat and blood
Glory - Passing over the strictly doxological passages, we note that ‘glory’ is given to God (or to Christ) (a) by the character or conduct of men: by the strength of their trust (Romans 4:20), in Eating, drinking, and all that they do (1 Corinthians 10:31), by thanksgiving (2 Corinthians 4:15), brotherly charity (2 Corinthians 8:19), the fruits of righteousness (Philippians 1:11), repentance and confession of sin (Revelation 16:9); (b) by the results of God’s own saving work, the Exaltation of Christ (Philippians 2:11), the faithful fulfilment of His promises in Christ (2 Corinthians 1:20), the reception of both Jews and Gentiles into the Church (Romans 15:7), the predestination of believers to the adoption of children (Ephesians 1:6), the whole accomplishment of that predestination, by faith, the sealing of the Spirit, and final redemption (Ephesians 1:14), by the marriage of the Lamb, the final and eternal union of Christ with the redeemed, sanctified, and glorified Church

Augustine - In reference to this employment his biographer, Posidonius, says: "At the desire of Christians, or of men belonging to any sect whatever, he would hear causes with patience and attention, sometimes till the usual hour of Eating, and sometimes the whole day without Eating at all, observing the dispositions of the parties, and how much they advanced or decreased in faith and good works; and when he had opportunity he instructed them in the law of God, and gave them suitable advice, requiring nothing of them except Christian obedience
