FLASK

A general term translators use to describe vessels. It does not appear in KJV. The term refers to a small container of perfumed oil in 2 Kings 9:1-3. The same Hebrew word appears in 1 Samuel 10:1. At Jeremiah 19:1 (RSV) refers to an earthenware water jar or jug. The vessel perhaps had a narrow neck making it impossible to mend (Jeremiah 19:10). This Hebrew word recurs in 1 Kings 14:3. At Matthew 25:4 small containers for lamp oil are meant. The Greek term appears only here in the New Testament. Luke 7:37 refers to a small alabaster container such as had been used for expensive perfumes for thousands of years.
