pich'-er (kadh; keramion): The word is found chiefly in the Old Testament in the story of Rebekah in Ge 24:13 ff; but Gideon's men also had their lamps in pitchers (Jg 7:16,19). Ecclesiastes speaks of the pitcher broken at the fountain (Jg 12:6). The single use in the New Testament is in Mr 14:13 parallel Lu 22:10. The pitcher was an earthenware vessel (compare La 4:2, nebhel), with one or two handles, used for carrying water, and commonly borne upon the head or shoulder (compare Ge 24:1-67).
