To drink water by measure (Ezekiel 4:11 ), and to buy water to drink (Lamentations 5:4 ), denote great scarcity. To drink blood means to be satiated with slaughter.

The Jews carefully strained their drinks through a sieve, through fear of violating the law of Leviticus 11:20,23,41,42 . (See Matthew 23:24 . "Strain at" should be "strain out.")
