Easton's Bible Dictionary (1897)/Charger
Charger : A bowl or deep dish. The silver vessels given by the heads of the tribes for the services of the tabernacle are so named (Num. 7:13, etc.). The "charger" in which the Baptist's head was presented was a platter or flat wooden trencher (Matt. 14:8, 11; Mark 6:25, 28). The chargers of gold and silver of |Ezra 1:9 were probably basins for receiving the blood of sacrifices.
