6. Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary
Bowl
   The sockets of the lamps of the golden candlestick of the
   tabernacle are called bowls (Ex. 25:31, 33, 34; 37:17, 19, 20);
   the same word so rendered being elsewhere rendered "cup" (Gen.
   44:2, 12, 16), and wine "pot" (Jer. 35:5). The reservoir for
   oil, from which pipes led to each lamp in Zechariah's vision of
   the candlestick, is called also by this name (Zech. 4:2, 3); so
   also are the vessels used for libations (Ex. 25:29; 37:16).
