Basket @ There are five different Hebrew words so rendered in the Authorized Version: (1.) A basket (Heb. sal, a twig or osier) for holding bread Genesis:40:16; Exodus:29:3Exodus:29:23Leviticus:8:2Leviticus:8:26, 31; Numbers:6:15-17, 19). Sometimes baskets were made of twigs peeled; their manufacture was a recognized trade among the Hebrews. (2.) That used (Heb. salsilloth') in gathering grapes Jeremiah:6:9). (3.) 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. (4.) 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). (5.) A basket (Heb. dud) for carrying figs Jeremiah:24:2), also clay to the brick-yard (R.V., Psalms:81:6), and bulky articles ( 2Kings:10:7). This word is also rendered in the Authorized Version "kettle" ( 1Samuel:2:14), "caldron" ( 2Chronicals: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; 2Corinthians:11:33, Gr. sargane, "basket of plaited cords").
