Lexiph. 1; in a bad sense, language artfully adapted to captivate the hearer, fair speaking, fine speeches: Romans 16:18 (joined with χρηστολογία, the latter relating to the substance, εὐλογία to the expression); plural in Aesop, fab. 229, p. 150 edition Cor. ἐάν σύ εὐλογίας ἐυπορης, ἐγώ῟γε σου οὐ κήδομαι (but why not genitive singular?). By a usage unknown to native Greeks.

4. consecration: τό ποτήριον τῆς εὐλογίας, the consecrated cup (for that this is the meaning is evident from the explanatory adjunct εὐλογοῦμεν, see εὐλογέω 3 (others besides; cf. Meyer edition Heinrici at the passage; Winer's Grammar, 189 (178))), 1 Corinthians 10:16.
