From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary :

     (1.) A pocket of a cone-like shape in which Naaman bound two
     pieces of silver for Gehazi (2 Kings 5:23). The same Hebrew word
     occurs elsewhere only in Isa. 3:22, where it is rendered
     "crisping-pins," but denotes the reticules (or as R.V.,
     "satchels") carried by Hebrew women.
       (2.) Another word (kees) so rendered means a bag for carrying
     weights (Deut. 25:13; Prov. 16:11; Micah 6:11). It also denotes
     a purse (Prov. 1:14) and a cup (23:31).
       (3.) Another word rendered "bag" in 1 Sam. 17:40 is rendered
     "sack" in Gen. 42:25; and in 1 Sam. 9:7; 21:5 "vessel," or
     wallet for carrying food.
       (4.) The word rendered in the Authorized Version "bags," in
     which the priests bound up the money contributed for the
     restoration of the temple (2 Kings 12:10), is also rendered
     "bundle" (Gen. 42:35; 1 Sam. 25:29). It denotes bags used by
     travellers for carrying money during a journey (Prov. 7:20; Hag.
       (5.) The "bag" of Judas was a small box (John 12:6; 13:29).
