Smith's Bible Dictionary [4]

Pot. The term "pot" is applicable to so many sorts of vessels that it can scarcely be restricted to any one in particular.

1. (Hebrew, Asuc ),  2 Kings 4:2, the earthen jar, deep and narrow, without handles, probably like the Roman and Egyptian amphora , inserted in a stand of wood or stone.

2. (Hebrew, Cheres ), an earthen vessel for stewing or seething.  Leviticus 6:28;  Ezekiel 4:9.

3. (Hebrew, Dud ), a vessel for culinary purposes, perhaps of smaller size.  1 Samuel 2:14. The "pots" set before the Rachabites,  Jeremiah 35:5, were probably bulging jars or bowls. The water-pots of Cana appear to have been large amphorae , such as are in use at the present day in Syria. These were of stone or hard earthenware. The water-pot of the Samaritan woman may have been a leathern bucket, such as Bedouin women use.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia [8]

pot  : A term used as the translation of a number of Hebrew and Greek words whose fundamental meaning seems to describe them as intended for the most part to hold liquid or semi-liquid substances, but the pots of   Exodus 27:3 are intended to hold ashes. (1) סר , ṣı̄r , the most common word for "pot." It designates most frequently some household utensil, probably a pot or kettle for boiling. So  2 Kings 4:38 ff;   Exodus 16:3;  Jeremiah 1:13 the King James Version;   Ezekiel 11:3 ,  Ezekiel 11:7 ,  Ezekiel 11:11 , "caldron";  Ezekiel 24:3 ,  Ezekiel 24:6 the King James Version;   Micah 3:3;  Zechariah 14:21 , etc. It is also used as the name of some vessel of the sanctuary. So  Exodus 27:3 , where the context shows it was intended to hold ashes;  1 Kings 7:45;  2 Chronicles 4:16;  2 Kings 25:14 . In  Psalm 60:8;  Psalm 108:9 , it is a pot for washing. (2) פּריּר , pārūr ( Numbers 11:8;  1 Samuel 2:14 ), a vessel for boiling; in  Judges 6:19 , a vessel for holding broth. (3) דּוּד , dūdh , rendered "pot" in  Psalm 81:6 in the King James Version, "basket" in the Revised Version (British and American); "pot" both the King James Version and the Revised Version (British and American) in   Job 41:20 . (4) צנצנת , cinceneth ( Exodus 16:33 ), the jar in which the manna was placed. This jar or pot is mentioned in  Hebrews 9:4 under the name στάμνος , stámnos . (5) אסון , 'āṣōn ( 2 Kings 4:2 ), some kind of jar for holding oil. (6) ξέστης , xéstēs ( Mark 7:4 ), some kind of household utensil. Mention may also be made of the word rendered "pot" in  Leviticus 6:28 the King James Version, where the Revised Version (British and American) renders more correctly by the general term "vessel"; for the King James Version "pots" (  Psalm 68:13 ) the Revised Version (British and American) substitutes "sheepfolds." The root is uncertain. Those who render "sheepfolds" connect with the related root in  Genesis 49:14;  Judges 5:16 . Others render "fireplaces" or "ash heaps." See also "range for pots," in  Leviticus 11:35; "pots,"  Jeremiah 35:5 the King James Version, correctly "bowls" the Revised Version (British and American); "refining pots" in   Proverbs 17:3;  Proverbs 27:21 . See also Food .
