Draught House

DRAUGHT HOUSE drăft. The Qe' substitutes the less objectionable מֹֽוצָאֹ֖ות, “sinks,” for מַחֲרָאוֹת, “privies,” in the Keṯiḇ. LXX λυτρών, “privy,” RSV LATRINE, public restroom. In purging Baal worship from Israel Jehu demolished the temple of Baal and converted it into a latrine (2 Kings 10:27). Such an action was the utmost desecration (cf. Ezra 6:11; Dan 2:5).
