VESSELS . See House, § 9; Meals, § 5. For ‘the vessels of the tabernacle’ (AV [Note: Authorized Version.] ) RV [Note: Revised Version.] has sometimes ‘furniture,’ sometimes ‘instruments,’ according to the context (cf. Numbers 1:50 with 3:26). For the Temple cf. 1 Chronicles 9:29 in AV [Note: Authorized Version.] and RV [Note: Revised Version.] . In Genesis 43:11 ‘vessels’ is equivalent to ‘saddlebags.’ In 1 Thessalonians 4:4 ‘vessel’ probably stands for ‘body’ rather than ‘wife,’ an alternative favoured by many (see Milligan, Thess ., ad loc .).
