Brass

Additional Links

Brass. The Hebrew word, nechosheth is improperly translated by "brass." In most places of the Old Testament, the correct translation would be copper, although it may, sometimes, possibly mean bronze, a compound of copper and tin. Indeed, a simple metal was obviously intended, as we see from Deuteronomy 8:9; Deuteronomy 33:25; Job 28. Copper was known at a very early period. Genesis 4:22.
