    Clarke's Commentary on Mark 11:16

    Should carry any vessel - Among the Jews the word כלי keli, vessel, had a vast latitude of meaning; it signified arms, Jeremiah 21:4; Ezekiel 9:1; clothes, Deuteronomy 22:5, and instruments of music, Psalm 71:22. It is likely that the evangelist uses the Greek word σκευος in the same sense, and by it points out any of the things which were bought and sold in the temple.

    Barnes' Notes on Mark 11:16

    Any vessel - Any vessel used in cooking, or connected with the sale of their articles of merchandise.

    Wesley's Notes on Mark 11:16

    11:16 He suffered not that any should carry a vessel through the temple - So strong notions had our Lord, of even relative holiness! And of the regard due to those places (as well as times) that are peculiarly dedicated to God.
