        There are five different Hebrew words so rendered in the
        Authorized Version: (1.) A basket (Heb. sal, a twig or osier)
        for holding bread (Gen. 40:16; Ex. 29:3, 23; Lev. 8:2, 26, 31;
        Num. 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 (Jer.
        (3.) That in which the first fruits of the harvest were
        presented, Heb. tene, (Deut. 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 (Jer. 24:2), also
        clay to the brick-yard (R.V., Ps. 81:6), and bulky articles (2
        Kings 10:7). This word is also rendered in the Authorized
        Version "kettle" (1 Sam. 2:14), "caldron" (2 Chr. 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 Matt. 15:37
        (Gr. spuris, large "rope-basket"); also of the basket in which
        Paul escaped (Acts 9:25, Gr. spuris; 2 Cor. 11: 33, Gr. sargane,
        "basket of plaited cords").
