Dish [EBD]

for eating from (2 Kings 21:13). Judas dipped his hand with a "sop" or piece of bread in the same dish with our Lord, thereby indicating friendly intimacy (Matt. 26:23). The "lordly dish" in Judg. 5:25 was probably the shallow drinking cup, usually of brass. In Judg. 6:38 the same Hebrew word is rendered "bowl."

The dishes of the tabernacle were made of pure gold (Ex. 25:29; 37:16).

Dish [NAVE]

See: Plate, Platter.


DISH - The rendering in English Versions of the Bible in some connections of three Hebrew and one Greek word. The qe`arah of Ex 25:29; 37:16; Nu 4:7 was apparently a kind of salver, in this case of gold, for holding the loaves of the "presence bread." The same word represents the silver "platters" (Nu 7:13 ff) brought by the princes as a dedication gift. The cephel of Jdg 5:25 was a large bowl, so translated in Jdg 6:38. "Lordly dish" is literally, "bowl of (fit for) nobles." The tsallachath of 2 Ki 21:13; Prov 19:24; 26:15 (last two the King James Version "bosom" after the Septuagint) refers probably to the wide, deep dish in which the principal part of the meal was served. Of somewhat similar form may have been the trublion Septuagint for qe`arah) mentioned in connection with the Passover meal (Mt 26:23; Mk 14:20).
