APOTHECARY . In all the 8 occurrences of this word in OT and Apocr. [Note: Apocrypha, Apocryphal.] we should render ‘perfumer,’ as does RV [Note: Revised Version.] in half of these ( Exodus 30:25 ; Exodus 30:35 ; Exodus 37:29 , Ecclesiastes 10:1 ); elsewhere the former is retained ( 2 Chronicles 16:14 , Nehemiah 3:8 (cf. marg.), Sir 38:8 ; Sir 49:1 ). See Perfumer.
