Heb. ashishah, (2 Samuel 6:19; 1 Chronicles 16:3; Song of Solomon 2:5; Hosea 3:1 ), meaning properly "a cake of pressed raisins." "Flagons of wine" of the Authorized Version should be, as in the Revised Version, "cakes of raisins" in all these passages. In Isaiah 22:24 it is the rendering of the Hebrew Nebel , Which properly means a bottle or vessel of skin. (Compare 1 Samuel 1:24; 10:3; 25:18; 2 Samuel 16:1 , where the same Hebrew word is used.)
