 εὐλογία, εὐλογίας, (εὔλογος); the Sept. for בְּרָכָה; Vulg. benedictio; as in classical Greek:

1. praise, laudation, panegyric: of God or Christ, Revelation 5:12,13; Revelation 7:12.

2. fine discourse, polished language: Plato, rep. 3, p. 400d.; Luc. Lexiph. 1; in a bad sense, language artfully adapted to captivate the hearer, fair speaking, fine speeches: Romans 16:18 (joined with χρηστολογία, the latter relating to the substance, εὐλογία to the expression); plural in Aesop, fab. 229, p. 150 edition Cor. ἐάν σύ εὐλογίας ἐυπορης, ἐγώ῟γε σου οὐ κήδομαι (but why not genitive singular?). By a usage unknown to native Greeks.

3. an invocation of blessings, benediction: Hebrews 12:17; James 3:10, ( Genesis 27:35f, 38, others; Sirach 3:8 Sirach 37:24; Josephus, Antiquities 4,8, 44); see εὐλογέω, 2.

4. consecration: τό ποτήριον τῆς εὐλογίας, the consecrated cup (for that this is the meaning is evident from the explanatory adjunct εὐλογοῦμεν, see εὐλογέω 3 (others besides; cf. Meyer edition Heinrici at the passage; Winer's Grammar, 189 (178))), 1 Corinthians 10:16.
