bowls: The reviewer in Evangelical Christendom, August, 1860, p. 451, objects, among other departures from "the time-honored expressions of our venerable Saxon Bible," that I have given "bowls" instead of "vials." But surely he must be aware that "a small bottle" is not intended by φιάλη here, or anywhere else in the book, but rather a broad open vessel or basin. Compare in the LXX., Exod. 27:3; 38:3; Num. 7. passim: also answering to other Hebrew words, Num. 4:14; 2 Chron. 4:16, etc. We ought not to sacrifice the sense to sound. The English word "vial," though derived from the Greek, really misleads. Habit or the ear may account for such a preference. (Lect. on Rev., p.117)
