33And every earthen vessel, whereinto any of them falleth, whatsoever is in it shall be unclean; and ye shall break it.
33 Verse 33. And every earthen vessel] Such pitchers as are
commonly used for drinking out of, and for holding liquids. M.
De la Roque observes that hair-sacks, trunks, and baskets,
covered with skin, are used among the travelling Arabs to carry
their household utensils in, which are kettles or pots, great
wooden bowls, hand-mills, and pitchers. It is very likely that
these are nearly the same with those used by the Israelites in
their journeyings in the wilderness, for the customs of these
people do not change.
