“The Greek οψωνιον, rendered wages, was commonly meant of the pay of soldiers in provisions or money. Dannhauerus, cited by Wolfius, gives an account of it to this purpose and sense: It commonly signified, he says, the wages, in particular, by which gladiators were hired to sell their blood, to give pleasure to the populace. So, as the gladiator, for wages and provisions afforded him, gave himself up to butchery and destruction, for the amusement and diversion of the cruel and barbarous Roman rabble; so the sinner doth, for the present pleasure of sin, give himself up to eternal destruction; whereby he gratifies and satiates the malice of devils.” (Page 102)
