Fat


Fat, i.e., Vat, the word employed in the Authorized Version to translate the Hebrew term yekeb, in Joel 2:24; 3:13. The word commonly used for yekeb is “winepress” or “winefat,” and once “pressfat.” Hag. 2:16. The “vats” appear to have been excavated out of the native rock of the hills on which the vineyards lay.
