(Strong's #2878 — Noun Masculine — korban — kor-ban', kor-ban-as' )

signifies (a) "an offering," and was a Hebrew term for any sacrifice, whether by the shedding of blood or otherwise; (b) "a gift offered to God," Mark 7:11 . Jews were much addicted to rash vows; a saying of the rabbis was, "It is hard for the parents, but the law is clear, vows must be kept." The Sept. translates the word by doron, "a gift." See korbanas, under TREASURY , Matthew 27:6 .
