1: σκεῦος
(Strong's #4632 — Noun Neuter — skeuos — skyoo'-os )

is used (a) of "a vessel or implement" of various kinds, Mark 11:16 ; Luke 8:16 ; John 19:29 ; Acts 10:11,16 ; 11:5 ; 27:17 (a sail); Romans 9:21 ; 2 Timothy 2:20 ; Hebrews 9:21 ; Revelation 2:27 ; 18:12 ; (b) of "goods or household stuff," Matthew 12:29 and Mark 3:27 , "goods;" Luke 17:31 , RV, "goods" (AV, "stuff"); (c) of "persons," (1) for the service of God, Acts 9:15 , "a (chosen) vessel;" 2 Timothy 2:21 , "a vessel (unto honor);" (2) the "subjects" of Divine wrath, Romans 9:22 ; (3) the "subjects" of Divine mercy, Romans 9:23 ; (4) the human frame, 2 Corinthians 4:7 ; perhaps 1 Thessalonians 4:4 ; (5) a husband and wife, 1 Peter 3:7 ; of the wife, probably, 1 Thessalonians 4:4 ; while the exhortation to each one "to possess himself of his own vessel in sanctification and honor" is regarded by some as referring to the believer's body [cp. Romans 6:13 ; 1 Corinthians 9:27 ; see No. (4)], the view that the "vessel" signifies the wife, and that the reference is to the sanctified maintenance of the married state, is supported by the facts that in 1 Peter 3:7 the same word time, "honor," is used with regard to the wife; again in Hebrews 13:4 , timios, "honorable" (RV, "in honor") is used in regard to marriage; further, the preceding command in 1 Thessalonians 4 is against fornication, and the succeeding one ( 1 Thessalonians 4:6 ) is against adultery. In Ruth 4:10 , Sept., ktaomai, "to possess," is used of a wife.

2: ἀγγεῖον
(Strong's #30 — Noun Neuter — angos — ang-eye'-on )

denotes "a jar" or "pail," Matthew 13:48 , in the best texts (some have No. 3). It is used, in an inscription, of a cinerary urn.

3: ἀγγεῖον
(Strong's #30 — Noun Neuter — angeion — ang-eye'-on )

denotes "a small vessel" (a diminutive of No. 2), e.g., for carrying oil, Matthew 25:4 .

Note: For phaulos, James 3:16 , RV, see EVIL , A, No. 3.
