warz (maqqachah, mekher, mimkar, kin`ah, ma`aseh, `izzabhon, keli):
(1) maqqachah, something received or purchased (Nehemiah 10:31);
(2) mekher, "price" or "pay," value, merchandise (Nehemiah 13:16);
(3) mimkar, a "selling," the thing sold (Nehemiah 13:20);
(4) kin`ah, a "package," hence, wares (Jeremiah 10:17);
(5) ma`aseh, "transaction," activity, property, possession, work, occupation, thing made, deed, business (Ezekiel 27:16,18);
(6) `izzabhon, "selling," trade, revenue, mart, letting go for a price (Ezekiel 27:33);
(7) keli, a "prepared" something, as an implement, tool, weapon, utensil, armor, furniture, sack, vessel, hence, wares (Jonah 1:5).
In most cases the real sense is merchandise (see MERCHANDISE). "That which did not a little amuse the Merchandizers (in Vanity-Fair) was, that these Pilgrims set very light by all their Wares; they cared not so much as to look upon them" (Bunyan, The Pilgrim's Progress).
