Cage

Additional Links

CAGE . Birds were taken to market in a cage or coop of wicker work ( Jeremiah 5:27 ); a similar cage might hold a decoy-bird in fowling ( Sir 11:30 ). One of Ashurbanipal’s hunting scenes shows a cage of strong wooden bars from which a lion is being let loose (cf. Ezekiel 19:8 RV [Note: Revised Version.] ). In Revelation 18:2 render, with RV [Note: Revised Version.] , ‘hold’ or ‘prison’ for AV [Note: Authorized Version.] ‘cage.’
