the common form of ancient books. The Hebrew word rendered
"roll" or "volume" is "meghillah", found in Ezra 6:2; Ps. 40:7;
Jer. 36:2, 6, 23, 28, 29; Ezek. 2:9; 3:1-3; Zech. 5:1, 2.
"Rolls" (Chald. pl. of sephar, corresponding to Heb. sepher) in
Ezra 6:1 is rendered in the Revised Version "archives." In the
New Testament the word "volume" (Heb. 10:7; R.V., "roll") occurs
as the rendering of the Greek kephalis, meaning the head or top
of the stick or cylinder on which the manuscript was rolled, and
hence the manuscript itself. (See BOOK T0000622.)
