Easton's Bible Dictionary
A utensil; a flask or cup for holding water (1 Samuel 26:11,12,16
; 1 Kings 19:6
) or oil (1 Kings 17:12,14,16
). In 1 Kings 14:3
the word there so rendered means properly a bottle, as in Jeremiah 19:1,10
, or pitcher. In 2 Kings 2:20
, a platter or flat metal saucer is intended. The Hebrew word here used is translated "dish" in 21:13; "pans," in 2 Chronicles 35:13
; and "bosom," in Proverbs 19:24
