("Shepherd's bag".) (yalquwt), 1 Samuel 17:40; 2 Kings 4:42 (tsiqlon) margin. In New Testament, the leather "wallet" (fra) slung on the shoulder for carrying food for a journey; distinct from the "purse" (zone, literally, "girdle"; balantion, "small bag for money"): Matthew 10:9-10; Luke 10:4; Luke 12:33. Unlike other travelers, the twelve and the seventy, when sent forth, were wholly dependent on God, having no provision for their journey; at other times they carried provisions in a bag and purse (Luke 22:35-36; John 12:6; Mark 8:14-16). The English "scrip," originally "script," related to "scrap," was used for food.
