Carpenter

[HANDICRAFT]

Easton's Bible Dictionary
An artificer in stone, iron, and copper, as well as in wood (2 Samuel 5:11; 1 Chronicles 14:1; Mark 6:3). The tools used by carpenters are mentioned in 1 Samuel 13:19, 20; Judges 4:21; Isaiah 10:15; 44:13. It was said of our Lord, "Is not this the carpenter's son?" (Matthew 13:55); also, "Is not this the carpenter?" (Mark 6:3). Every Jew, even the rabbis, learned some handicraft: Paul was a tentmaker. "In the cities the carpenters would be Greeks, and skilled workmen; the carpenter of a provincial village could only have held a very humble position, and secured a very moderate competence."
Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
(n.) An artificer who works in timber; a framer and builder of houses, ships, etc.

CARPENTER

kar'-pen-ter (charash; tekton): This word, which is a general word for graver or craftsman, is translated "carpenter" in 2 Kings 22:6 2 Chronicles 24:12; Ezra 3:7 Isaiah 41:7. The same word is rendered "craftsman" in the American Standard Revised Version of Jeremiah 24:1 and Jeremiah 29:2 and "smith" in the American Standard Revised Version of Zechariah 1:20. In 2 Samuel 5:11 2 Kings 12:11; 1 Chronicles 14:1; and Isaiah 44:13, charash occurs with `ets (wood), and is more exactly translated "carpenter" or "worker in wood." Tekton, the corresponding Greek word for artificer, is translated "carpenter" in Matthew 13:55 and Mark 6:3.
