King James Dictionary - Bank
BANK, n. Bank and bench are radically the same word. The sense is, that which is set, laid or extended. Applied to a mass of earth, it is a collection, that which is thrown or laid together.
1. A mound, pile or ridge of earth, raised above the surrounding plain, either as a defense or for other purposes. 2Sam.xx 15. 2. Any steep acclivity, whether rising from a river, a lake, or the sea, or forming the side of a ravine, or the steep side of a hillock on a plain. When we speak of the earth in general adjoining a lake or the sea, we use the word shore but a particular steep acclivity on the side of a lake, river or the sea, is called a bank. 3. A bench,or a bench of rowers, in a galley so called from their seat. Placed on their banks, the lusty Trojans sweep.
4. By analogy, a collection or stock of money, deposited, by a number of persons, for a particular use that is, an aggregate of particulars, or a fund as, to establish a bank, that is a joint fund. 5. The place where a collection of money is deposited a common repository of the money of individuals or of companies also a house used for a bank. 6. A company of persons concerned in a bank, whether a private association, or an incorporated company the stockholders of a bank, or their representatives, the directors, acting in their corporate capacity. 7. An elevation, or rising ground, in the sea called also flats, shoals, shelves or shallows. These may rise to the surface of the water or near to it but the word bank signifies also elevated ground at the bottom of the sea, when many fathoms below the surface, as the banks of Newfoundland.
Morrish Bible Dictionary - Bank,
τράπεζα. This is literally a table, and mostly so translated, and which could be used for any purpose. Luke 19:23 . In Matthew 25:27 a kindred word is translated 'exchangers:' both passages imply that there were in those days, as now, those who received and lent money on interest.
Hastings' Dictionary of the New Testament - Bank
BANK.—1. In the parable of the Pounds, Christ upbraids the slothful servant because he had not I given his pound to the bank (ἐπὶ τράπεζαν), i.e. the office of the money-changers (Luke 19:23), who would have kept it safe, and also paid interest for it. ‘Bankers’ (τραπεζῖται) is used in Revised Version NT 1881, OT 1885 of Matthew 25:27 for ‘money-changers’ of the Authorized Version. In Greek cities the bankers sat at their tables (τράπεζα) in the market-place. They changed coins, but also took money on deposit, giving what would now seem very high interest (see articles ‘Money-Changers’ and ‘Usury’ in vols. iii. and iv. of Hasting's Dictionary of the Bible).
In this parable some suppose that Christ meant by ‘the bank’ to indicate the Synagogue, or the Christian Church as an organized body, which might use the gifts or powers of a disciple, when he could not, through timidity or lack of energy, exercise them himself. Others have supposed that He pointed to prayer as a substitute for good works, when the disciple was unable to do such. But all this is very precarious. (Cf. Bruce, Parabolic Teaching of Christ, p. 209 f.).
There is an apocryphal saying of Christ which may be connected with this parable. Origen (in Joann. xix. etc.) gives it thus: γἰνεσθε τρατεζἰται δὀκιμοι, ‘Be ye tried money-changers.’ This is explained in the Clementine Homilies (iii. 61) to mean that Christians should prove the words of Christ, as the bankers lest and approve the gold and silver on their tables. But it may perhaps he looked at rather as connected with the stewardship of gifts and talents by the Lord’s disciples, finding its parallel in such sayings as Luke 16:12 ‘If ye have not been faithful in that which is another man’s, who shall give you that which is your own?’ The duty of a timid servant may be to use his gifts under the guidance and authority of others, but growing experience might advance him to be a τρατεζίτης himself, who is able to trade boldly with that which has been entrusted to him.
2. In Luke 19:43 ‘bank,’ Authorized Version ‘trench’ (Gr. χάραξ). probably stands for a palisade (so (Revised Version margin)) of stakes, strengthened with brandies and earth, with a ditch behind, used by besiegers as a protection against arrows or attacking parties (Lat. vallum). Such a palisade was actually employed by the soldiers of Titus in the siege of Jerusalem, a.d. 70 (Josephus BJ v. vi. 2).

Jordan - It may be said to have two Banks, of which the inner marks the ordinary height of the stream; and the outer, its ancient elevation during the rainy season, or the melting of the snows on the summits of Lebanon. In the days of Joshua, and, it is probable, for many ages after his time, the harvest was one of the seasons when the Jordan over-flowed his Banks. This fact is distinctly recorded by the sacred historian: "And as they that bare the ark were come unto Jordan, and the feet of the priests that bare the ark were dipped in the brim of the water; for Jordan overfloweth all his Banks all the time of harvest," Joshua 3:15 . After having descended the outer Bank, he went about a furlong upon the level strand, before he came to the immediate Bank of the river. This inner Bank was so thickly covered with bushes and trees, among which he observed the tamarisk, the willow, and the oleander, that he could see no water till he had made his way through them. But although the state of this river in modern times completely justifies the incidental remarks of the sacred writers, it is evident that Maundrell was disconcerted by the shallowness of the stream, at the time of the year when he expected to see it overflowing all its Banks; and his embarrassment seems to have increased when he contemplated the double margin within which it flowed. He observed that it had an inner and outer Bank; but says, it rarely overflows the inner Bank; that when it does, they sow water mellons and other fruits of that kind, as soon as the water retires, and have a great produce. If it did not in ancient times annually overflow its Banks, the majesty of God in dividing its waters to make way for Joshua and the armies of Israel, was certainly the more striking to the Canaanites; who, when they looked upon themselves as defended in an extraordinary manner by the casual swelling of the river, its breadth and rapidity being both so extremely increased, yet, found it in these circumstances part asunder, and leave a way on dry land for the people of Jehovah
