Charger

Easton’s Bible Dictionary

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 (Numbers 7:13, etc.). The "charger" in which the Baptist's head was presented was a platter or flat wooden trencher (Matthew 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.
