Definition of Silver in the Bible



Silver: used for a great variety of purposes, as may be judged from the frequent references to it in Scripture. It first appears in commerce in Gen. 13:2; 23:15, 16. It was largely employed for making vessels for the sanctuary in the wilderness (Ex. 26:19; 27:17; Num. 7:13, 19; 10:2). There is no record of its having been found in Syria or Israel. It was brought in large quantities by foreign merchants from abroad, from Spain and India and other countries probably.
