Topic: In the cup in which she mixed (2 Posts)

Message: In the cup in which she mixed
Repay her the same way she repaid others; pay her back double corresponding to her deeds. In the cup she mixed, mix double the amount for her. [Rv 18:6 NET] Ἀπόδοτε αὐτῇ ὡς καὶ αὐτὴ ἀπέδωκεν, καὶ διπλώσατε { αὐτῇ διπλᾶ ♦ τὰ διπλᾶ } κατὰ τὰ ἔργα αὐτῆς· ἐν τῷ ποτηρίῳ ᾧ ἐκέρασεν κεράσατε αὐτῇ διπλοῦν. To what does "to mix in a cup" relate, i.e., what would have been commonly mixed in a cup at the time Rev. was written?

I have found my answer (six months later): it refers to the dilution of wine with water. (Drinking unmixed wine was considered barbaric.) See also Rv 14:10: That person will also drink of the wine of God’s anger that has been mixed undiluted in the cup of his wrath... [NET].
