Cellar

Cellar [EBD]

a subterranean vault (1 Chr. 27:28), a storehouse. The word is also used to denote the treasury of the temple (1 Kings 7:51) and of the king (14:26). The Hebrew word is rendered "garner" in Joel 1:17, and "armoury" in Jer. 50:25.

Cellar [NAVE]

CELLAR, for wine, 1 Chr. 27:27.
Oil, 1 Chr. 27:28.

CELLAR [ISBE]

CELLAR - sel'-er, sel'-ar (krupte; 'otsar): Krupte is found only in Lk 11:33, and is rendered "cellar" in the Revised Version (British and American); the King James Version has "secret place." In this passage it doubtless means a cellar beneath a house. Etymologically the Greek word means "a covered place," and in classical Greek its usage includes vaults and crypts as well as cellars. It seems evident that it was only the larger houses in Palestine in which cellars were used with any frequency. It is shown by the excavations that in rebuilding a town which was in ruins the old houses were sometimes utilized as cellars for the new. 'otsar, is rendered cellar only in 1 Ch 27:27 f. It is an erroneous rendering, the correct meaning being stores, or supplies, of wine and oil.
