Carpenter @ an artificer in stone, iron, and copper, as well as in wood ( 2Samuel:5:11; 1Chronicles:14:1; Mark:6:3). The tools used by carpenters are mentioned in 1Samuel:13:19-20; Judges:4:21; Isaiah:10:15Isaiah:44:13. It was said of our Lord, "Is not this the carpenter's son?" Matthew:13:55); also, "Is not this the carpenter?" Mark:6:3). Every Jew, even the rabbis, learned some handicraft: Paul was a tentmaker. "In the cities the carpenters would be Greeks, and skilled workmen; the carpenter of a provincial village could only have held a very humble position, and secured a very moderate competence."
