A pocket of a cone-like shape in which Naaman bound two pieces of silver for Gehazi ( 2 Kings 5:23 ). The same Hebrew word occurs elsewhere only in Isaiah 3:22 , where it is rendered "crisping-pins," but denotes the reticules (or as RSV, "satchels") carried by Hebrew women.
The word rendered in the Authorized Version "bags," in which the priests bound up the money contributed for the restoration of the temple ( 2 Kings 12:10 ), is also rendered "bundle" ( Genesis 42:35 ; 1 Samuel 25:29 ). It denotes bags used by travellers for carrying money during a journey ( Proverbs 7:20 ; Haggai 1:6 ).
