vı̄´al : In modern English means "a tiny flask." The word appears in English Versions of the Bible 1 Samuel 10:1 and the Revised Version (British and American) 2 Kings 9:1 , 2 Kings 9:3 (the King James Version "box") for פּך , pakh , a word found nowhere else and from a root meaning "to pour." The shape and size of the pakh are quite uncertain. In 1 Esdras 2:13; and the King James Version Revelation 5:8 , etc., "vial" translates φιάλη , phiale . The phialē was a flat, shallow bowl (Latin, patera ), shaped much like a saucer. Hence, the Revised Version's change to "bowl" in Revelation, a change that should have been made in 1 Esdras also.
