  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Butler 
  properly  a  servant  in  charge  of  the  wine  (Gen.  40:1-13;  41:9). 
  The  Hebrew  word  _mashkeh_,  thus  translated  is  rendered  also 
  (plural)  "cup-bearers"  (1  Kings  10:5;  2  Chr.  9:4).  Nehemiah 
  (1:11)  was  cup-bearer  to  king  Artaxerxes.  It  was  a  position  of 
  great  responsibility  and  honour  in  royal  households.
