1: γαζοφυλάκιον

(Strong's #1049 — Noun Neuter — gazophulakion — gad-zof-oo-lak'-ee-on )

from gaza, "a treasure," phulake, "a guard," is used by Josephus for a special room in the women's court in the Temple in which gold and silver bullion was kept. This seems to be referred to in John 8:20; in Mark 12:41 (twice),43; Luke 21:1 it is used of the trumpet-shaped or ram's-horn-shaped chests, into which the temple offerings of the people were cast. There were 13 chests, six for such gifts in general, seven for distinct purposes.

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