|1 Corinthians 6:19-20|
What? know you not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which you have of God, and you are not your own?
The term "pot" is applicable to so many sorts of vessels that it can scarcely be restricted to any one in particular.
- Asuc (2 Kings 4:2) the earthen jar, deep and narrow, without handles, probably like the Roman and Egyptian amphora, inserted in a stand of wood or stone.
- Cheres , an earthen vessel for stewing or seething. (Leviticus 6:28; Ezekiel 4:9)
- Dud , a vessel for culinary purposes, perhaps of smaller size. (1 Samuel 2:14) The "pots" set before the Rachabites, (Jeremiah 35:5) were probably bulging jars or bowls. The water-pots of Cana appear to have been large amphorae, such as are in use at the present day in Syria. These were of stone or hard earthenware. The water-pot of the Samaritan woman may have been a leathern bucket, such as Bedouin women use.
pot: A term used as the translation of a number of Hebrew and Greek words whose fundamental meaning seems to describe them as intended for the most part to hold liquid or semi-liquid substances, but the pots of Exodus 27:3 are intended to hold ashes.
(1) cir, the most common word for "pot." It designates most frequently some household utensil, probably a pot or kettle for boiling. So 2 Kings 4:38;; Exodus 16:3 Jeremiah 1:13 the King James Version; Ezekiel 11:3, 7, 11, "caldron"; 24:3, 6 the King James Version; Micah 3:3 Zechariah 14:21, etc. It is also used as the name of some vessel of the sanctuary. So Exodus 27:3, where the context shows it was intended to hold ashes; 1 Kings 7:45 2 Chronicles 4:16; 2 Kings 25:14. In Psalm 60:8; Psalm 108:9, it is a pot for washing.
(2) parur (Numbers 11:8 1 Samuel 2:14), a vessel for boiling; in Judges 6:19, a vessel for holding broth.
(3) dudh, rendered "pot" in Psalm 81:6 in the King James Version, "basket" in the Revised Version (British and American); "pot" both the King James Version and the Revised Version (British and American) in Job 41:20.
(4) tsintseneth (Exodus 16:33), the jar in which the manna was placed. This jar or pot is mentioned in Hebrews 9:4 under the name stamnos.
(5) 'acon (2 Kings 4:2), some kind of jar for holding oil.
(6) xestes (Mark 7:4), some kind of household utensil.
Mention may also be made of the word rendered "pot" in Leviticus 6:28 the King James Version, where the Revised Version (British and American) renders more correctly by the general term "vessel"; for the King James Version "pots" (Psalm 68:13) the Revised Version (British and American) substitutes "sheepfolds." The root is uncertain. Those who render "sheepfolds" connect with the related root in Genesis 49:14 Judges 5:16. Others render "fireplaces" or "ash heaps." See also "range for pots," in Leviticus 11:35; "pots," Jeremiah 35:5 the King James Version, correctly "bowls" the Revised Version (British and American); "refining pots" in Proverbs 17:3; Proverbs 27:21.
