KJV term for a (hand)mirror (Exodus 38:8 ). In biblical times mirrors were made of polished metal (molten mirror, Job 37:18 ) which yielded a somewhat distorted image (1 Corinthians 13:12 ). The women who ministered at the gate of the tabernacle donated their mirrors to be melted down for the bronze laver (Exodus 38:8 ). The KJV often refers to a mirror as a glass (Job 37:18 ; Isaiah 3:23 ; 1 Corinthians 13:12 ; James 1:23 ). See Glass .
