CARPENTER

kar'-pen-ter (charash; tekton): This word, which is a general word for graver or craftsman, is translated "carpenter" in 2 Ki 22:6; 2 Ch 24:12; Ezr 3:7; Isa 41:7. The same word is rendered "craftsman" in the American Standard Revised Version of Jer 24:1 and 29:2 and "smith" in the American Standard Revised Version of Zec 1:20. In 2 Sam 5:11; 2 Ki 12:11; 1 Ch 14:1; and Isa 44:13, charash occurs with `ets (wood), and is more exactly translated "carpenter" or "worker in wood." Tekton, the corresponding Greek word for artificer, is translated "carpenter" in Mt 13:55 and Mk 6:3.
See CARVING; CRAFTS.
