Cups in Tanach


"In the Tanach, כוס [kos, or cup] is always a figurative expression of the Divinely ordered purpose of life. In this sense the cup is also used by our Sages as a symbol replete with meaning… The drinking from the cup thus expresses the taking to heart and affirmation of a Divine ordained destiny."

(Rabbi Samshon Raphael Hirsch, Horeb 188)

Have a great day,
