The sockets of the lamps of the golden candlestick of the tabernacle are called bowls (Exodus 25:31,33,34 ; 37:17,19,20 ); the same word so rendered being elsewhere rendered "cup" (Genesis 44:2,12,16 ), and wine "pot" (Jeremiah 35:5 ). The reservoir for oil, from which pipes led to each lamp in Zechariah's vision of the candlestick, is called also by this name (Zechariah 4:2,3 ); so also are the vessels used for libations (Exodus 25:29 ; 37:16 ).
