    Definitions for 2 Samuel 6:19

    Flagon - Bottle; vessel.

    Clarke's Commentary on 2 Samuel 6:19

    A cake of bread - Such as those which are baked without leaven, and are made very thin.

    A good piece of flesh, and a flagon of wine - The words of flesh and of wine we add; they are not in the Hebrew. The Chaldee translates one part and one portion; but all the other versions understand the Hebrew as we do.

    Barnes' Notes on 2 Samuel 6:19

    A good piece of flesh - The word thus paraphrased is only found here and in marginal reference A piece of meat from the peace offerings is probably meant. From the fact that the chronicler explains the preceding cake by the more common word loaf, but leaves this obscure word unexplained, one might infer that it was already obsolete and unknown in his time. The Septuagint translates it: "a cake baked on the hearth;" the Vulgate "a piece of roast beef."

    A flagon of wine - Rather, "a cake" of grapes or raisins Hosea 3:1; Sol 2:5, or made with oil or mead.
