BUCKET

buk'-et (deli): The word is found only in Isaiah 40:15 Numbers 24:7, in the latter passage in a figurative use. The bucket was doubtless a waterskin with two cross-pieces at the top to fit it for use in drawing water, like those now in use in Palestine. The ordinary word for water-skin is a different one (no'dh).
