Isaiah 51:18 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

The cup of trembling - כוס התרעלה cos hattarelah, "the cup of mortal poison," veneni mortiferi. - Montan. This may also allude to the ancient custom of taking off criminals by a cup of poison. Socrates is well known to have been sentenced by the Areopagus to drink a cup of the juice of hemlock, which occasioned his death. See the note on Hebrews 2:9, and see also Bishop Lowth's note on Isaiah 51:21.

Hearken and Look; Or, Encouragement for Believers

The censuring world objects against religion that it is difficult
