Baggage

BAGGAGE

bag'aj:

(1) keli, ("the impedimenta of an army"):

"David left his baggage in the hand of the keeper of the baggage" (1 Samuel 17:22); "at Michmash he layeth up his baggage" (Isaiah 10:28). The American Standard Revised Version gives baggage for "stuff" at 1 Samuel 10:22; 25:13; 30:24.

(2) aposkeue:

"Beside the baggage" (Judith 7:2), "a great ado and much baggage" (1 Macc 9:35,39), "the women and the children and also the baggage" (the King James Version "and other baggage"; 2 Macc 12:21).

(3) aposkeuazomai, ("to make ready for leaving," "to pack up baggage"):

"We took up (made ready, Revised Version margin) our baggage" (Acts 21:15, the King James Version "carriages"), i.e. what they could carry--English: "luggage"; but others understand the term of the loading of the baggage animals.
