Holman Bible Dictionary


Resource Toolbox
An oxide mixture (usually of silica and aluminum) applied to ceramic surfaces that renders them impervious to moisture and gives them a glossy appearance. Some modern translations (NIV, REB, NRSV, TEV) divide the consonants of the Hebrew text of Proverbs 26:23 differently than the KJV and find a reference to a glaze rather than to silver dross. The TEV gives the sense of the passage: “Insincere talk that hides what you are really thinking is like a fine glaze on a cheap clay pot.” See Pottery.
