Lachrymatory (tear bottle)
Bottle: A vessel made of skins for holding wine (Joshua 9:4,13; 1 Samuel 16:20; Matthew 9:17) (Mark 2:22; Luke 5:37,38) or milk (Judges 4:19) or water (Genesis 21:14,15,19) or strong drink (Habakkuk 2:15) Earthenware vessels were also similarly used (Jeremiah 19:1-10; 1 Kings 14:3; Isaiah 30:14). In (Job 32:19) (comp.) (Matthew 9:17) (Luke 5:37,38; Mark 2:22) the reference is to a wine-skin ready to burst through the fermentation of the wine. "Bottles of wine" in the Authorized Version of (Hosea 7:5) is properly rendered in the Revised Version by "the heat of wine," i.e., the fever of wine, its intoxicating strength. The clouds are figuratively called the "bottles of heaven" (Job 38:37) A bottle blackened or shrivelled by smoke is referred to in (Psalms 119:83) as an image to which the psalmist likens himself.
