Drink-offering
        consisted of wine (Num. 15:5; Hos. 9:4) poured around the altar
        (Ex. 30:9). Joined with meat-offerings (Num. 6:15, 17; 2 Kings
        16:13; Joel 1:9, 13; 2:14), presented daily (Ex. 29:40), on the
        Sabbath (Num. 28:9), and on feast-days (28:14). One-fourth of an
        hin of wine was required for one lamb, one-third for a ram, and
        one-half for a bullock (Num. 15:5; 28:7, 14). "Drink offerings
        of blood" (Ps. 16:4) is used in allusion to the heathen practice
        of mingling the blood of animals sacrificed with wine or water,
        and pouring out the mixture in the worship of the gods, and the
        idea conveyed is that the psalmist would not partake of the
        abominations of the heathen.
