BUCKET (דְּלִי, H1932). A pail made of leather used for drawing water from a well or cistern (Isa 40:15; Num 24:7 fig.). It had two crosspieces at the top to keep it open. Such buckets are still in use in Pal.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

The word is found only in Isa 40:15; Nu 24:7, in the latter passage in a figurative use. The bucket was doubtless a waterskin with two cross-pieces at the top to fit it for use in drawing water, like those now in use in Palestine. The ordinary word for water-skin is a different one (no’dh).
