is the rendering in the Auth. Vers. of the following words: אוֹצָר, otsar', a treasure, as it is usually rendered, a store or stock of goods laid up, hence the place where they are deposited (Joe 1:17; "treasury," 2Ch 32:27); מֶזֶו, me'zev (Sept. ταμεῖον), a cell or store-room (Psalm cxliv. 13); ἀποθήκη, a repository-or place for storing away anything, especially a granary (Mt 3:12; Lu 3:17; elsewhere "barn"). SEE BARN. Cisterns (q.v.) are often used for this purpose in the East (Thomson, Land and Book, 2:262 sq.). The structures of the ancient Egyptians for the storage of grain were above ground, and of great importance in so eminently a grain-growing country. SEE AGRICULTURE.
