[A way of referring to] death; since the grave is dug very much like a pit. David [says]: "and I will be made like those who go down into the pit."[1] The holy Scripture is also accustomed to use this name for the great dangers: "and he led me up from the pit of wretchedness."[2]
Interpretation of a dream: to let oneself down into a pit, this [is] not good.[3]
Greek Original:
Λάκκος: ὁ θάνατος: ἐπειδὴ λάκκῳ παραπλησίως ὁ τάφος ὀρύττεται. Δαβίδ: καὶ ὁμοιωθήσομαι τοῖς καταβαίνουσιν εἰς λάκκον. καὶ τοὺς μεγάλους κινδύνους οὕτως ἔθος ὀνομάζειν τῇ θείᾳ γραφῇ. καὶ ἀνήγαγέ με ἐκ λάκκου ταλαιπωρίας. λύσις ὀνείρου: λάκκῳ καθεῖναι σαυτὸν οὐ καλὸν τόδε.
