Cruses



[krooz, kroos] /kruz, krus/

noun
1.
an earthen pot, bottle, etc., for liquids.
/kruːz/
noun
1.
a small earthenware container used, esp formerly, for liquids
n.

“small vessel for liquids,” early 15c., perhaps related to Old Norse krus “pot, tankard,” from a general Germanic root of unknown origin. Cf. Middle Dutch cruese, Dutch kroes “cup, pot, mug,” Middle Low German krus, Danish krus “mug, jug,” German Krause “jug, mug.”

a utensil; a flask or cup for holding water (1 Sam. 26:11, 12, 16; 1 Kings 19:6) or oil (1 Kings 17:12, 14, 16). In 1 Kings 14:3 the word there so rendered means properly a bottle, as in Jer. 19:1, 10, or pitcher. In 2 Kings 2:20, a platter or flat metal saucer is intended. The Hebrew word here used is translated “dish” in 21:13; “pans,” in 2 Chr. 35:13; and “bosom,” in Prov. 19:24; 26:15 (R.V., “dish”).
