gob´let ( אגּן , 'aggān ): A bowl or basin ( Song of Solomon 7:2 ), the only place where the word is used. 'Aggān is used in the plural in Exodus 24:6 and Isaiah 22:24 , and is translated "basins" and "cups." These "basins" were used to hold the blood of the sacrifices and must have been of moderate size. The "cups" were bowl-shaped vessels and belonged evidently to the smaller class of vessels used in a house.
