(כִּד, kad [κάδος, cadus], a pitcher or pail), a vessel used for the keeping of flour (1 Kings 17:12; 1 Kings 17:14; 1 Kings 17:16; 1 Kings 18:33). The same word is in other places rendered "pitcher," as the same vessel appears to have been also used for carrying water (Genesis 24:14; Judges 7:16; Ecclesiastes 12:6). It was borne on the shoulders, as is the custom in the East in the present day. (See PITCHER).
