Is the rendering of several words in the Old and New Testaments.
Charitim, the "bags" in which Naaman bound up the two talents of silver for Gehazi. (2 Kings 5:23) They were long cone-like bags of the size to hold a precise amount of money, and tied or sealed for that amount, as we stamp the value on a coin.
Cis, a bag for carrying weights, (25:13) also used as a purse (Proverbs 1:14)
Tschar, properly a "bundle," (Genesis 42:35) appears to have been used by travellers for carrying money during a long journey. (Proverbs 7:20)
The "bag" which Judas carried was probably a small box or chest. (John 12:6; 13:29)
