Basket

There are five different Hebrew words so rendered in the Authorized Version:

  • A basket (Heb. sal, a twig or osier) for holding bread (Genesis 40:16; Exodus 29:3,23; Leviticus 8:2,26,31; Numbers 6:15,17,19). Sometimes baskets were made of twigs peeled; their manufacture was a recognized trade among the Hebrews.

  • That used (Heb. salsilloth') in gathering grapes (Jeremiah 6:9).

  • That in which the first fruits of the harvest were presented, Heb. tene, (Deuteronomy 26:2,4). It was also used for household purposes. In form it tapered downwards like that called Corbis by the Romans.

  • A basket (Heb. kelub) having a lid, resembling a bird-cage. It was made of leaves or rushes. The name is also applied to fruit-baskets (Amos 8:1,2).

  • A basket (Heb. dud) for carrying figs (Jeremiah 24:2), also clay to the brick-yard (RSV, Psalms 81:6), and bulky articles (2 Kings 10:7). This word is also rendered in the Authorized Version "kettle" (1 Samuel 2:14), "caldron" (2 Chronicles 35:13), "seething-pot" (Job 41:20).

    In the New Testament mention is made of the basket (Gr. kophinos, small "wicker-basket") for the "fragments" in the miracle recorded Mark 6:43, and in that recorded Matthew 15:37 (Gr. spuris, large "rope-basket"); also of the basket in which Paul escaped (Acts 9:25, Gr. spuris; 2 Corinthians 11:: 33, Gr. sargane, "basket of plaited cords").
