    Barnes' Notes on Ezra 1:9

    Chargers - The word in the original thus translated occurs only in this passage. Its meaning is doubtful. Some derive it from a Hebrew root, "to hollow out," and translate "cup" or "vessel."

    Knives - This is another doubtful word, only used here. The etymology points to some employment of basket-work.
