Granary

GRANARY (grăn'êrē, Heb. māzû, Gr. apothēkē). Derived from a Hebrew word meaning “to gather” (Ps.144.13) or Hebrew ôtzār, meaning “storehouse” (Joel.1.17). In the NT the term is sometimes rendered “barn,” and sometimes “garner” (Matt.3.12; Luke.3.17 kjv). The Egyptians had storehouses for grain, liquor, armor, provisions, jewels, etc. Joseph, during the years of famine in Egypt, had authority over the storehouses (Gen.41.56).
