Easton's Bible Dictionary
A bowl or deep dish. The silver vessels given by the heads of the tribes for the services of the tabernacle are so named (Numbers 7:13, etc.). The "charger" in which the Baptist's head was presented was a platter or flat wooden trencher (Matthew 14:8, 11; Mark 6:25, 28). The chargers of gold and silver of Ezra 1:9 were probably basins for receiving the blood of sacrifices.
Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
1. (n.) One who, or that which charges.

2. (n.) An instrument for measuring or inserting a charge.

3. (n.) A large dish.

4. (n.) A horse for battle or parade.

CHARGER

char'-jer (the American Standard Revised Version "platter"): A word which meant in the older English speech a flat dish or platter. It is used in the Bible as the translation:

(1) of qe`arah, which in Numbers 7:19 the King James Version (the Revised Version (British and American) "platter") and repeatedly in that chapter denotes one of the gifts made by the several princes at the dedication of the tabernacle;

(2) of 'agharTal, a word of uncertain derivation used in Ezra 1:9 (the King James Version) twice to designate certain temple vessels which might better be called "libation bowls";

(3) of pinax, used Matthew 14:8, 11 Mark 6:25, 28 (EV) for the dish in which the head of John the Baptist was presented.
