Sometimes it means the good or the benefit itself which has been conferred, as in Genesis 27:36 , "Hast thou not reserved a blessing for me?" and Proverbs 10:22 , "The blessing of Yahweh, it maketh rich." "The cup of blessing" (τὸ ποτήριον τῆς εὐλογίας , tó potḗrion tḗs eulogı́as , a special use of the word in 1 Corinthians 10:16 ), means the cup for which we bless God, or which represents to us so much blessin g from God.
