Hastings' Dictionary of the New Testament - Wallet
WALLET (Revised Version NT 1881, OT 1885 translation of πήρα, Matthew 10:10 etc.; Authorized Version ‘scrip’).—This corresponds to the kĕlî hârô‘îm, or yalkût, of 1 Samuel 17:40 (see, however, H. P. Smith, Samuel, in loc.). It is a bag made of partially tanned kid-skin, bound by a strap round the waist, or slung from the shoulder. In it the shepherd carries his supply of provisions when going with the flock to distant pasture. The coarse loaves of the country, olives, and dried fruit form the staple diet, with an occasional lump of cheese. The wallet, however, serves the purpose of the boy’s pocket among ourselves, and often contains a curious assortment of articles. The Authorized Version ‘scrip’ appears in our literature with the same meaning. Milton (Comus, line 626) speaks of the shepherd s ‘leathern scrip’ in which are carried ‘simples of a thousand names’ (cf. Shakespeare, As You Like It, Act iii. sc. 2). Setting out on a journey, the Syrian peasant carries a wallet well furnished, which he opens for refreshment as he rests by the way, or in the shelter of the khân at nightfall. Christ’s Apostles were to go unencumbered on their special mission (Matthew 10:10, Mark 6:8, Luke 9:3; Luke 10:4), trusting to hospitality, and the providing care of their Master.* [1] But, as an ordinary rule, provident forethought is to be commended (Luke 22:36).

Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Bag, Purse, Wallet
BAG, PURSE, WALLET . Several kinds of bags, etc. may be distinguished. ( a ) The shepherd’s and traveller’s wallet for carrying one or more days’ provisions. Like most of the other OT bags, it was made of skin, generally undressed, and was slung across the shoulder. This is the scrip of Matthew 10:10 and parallels (RV [1] ‘ wallet ’). The former is retained by our RV [1] (but Amer. RV [1] ‘wallet’) to render a unique word, which had to be explained even to Hebrew readers by the gloss ‘the shepherd’s bag’ ( 1 Samuel 17:40 ). ( b ) A more finished article, the leather satchel which served as a purse ( Luke 10:4 ; Luke 12:33 AV [4] here bag). For illust. see Rich, Dict. of Antiq . 217. The purse of Matthew 10:9 , Mark 6:8 , however, was merely the folds of the girdle (see RVm [5] ). ( c ) The merchant’s bag, in which he kept his stone weights ( Deuteronomy 25:13 ), also served as a purse ( Proverbs 1:14 ). ( d ) The favourite bag for money and valuables hence the beautiful figure 1 Samuel 25:29 , where ‘the hundle of life’ = life’s jewel-case was one which could he tied with a string ( 2 Kings 12:10 , Proverbs 7:20 , also Genesis 42:35 EV [6] ‘bundle’). If required, a seal could be put on the knot ( Job 14:17 ). ( e ) Another word is used both for a large bag, capable of holding a talent of silver ( 2 Kings 5:23 ), and for the dainty lady’s satchel ( Isaiah 3:22 RV [1] ; AV [4] crisping pins ), ( f ) The ‘bag’ which Judas carried ( John 12:6 ; John 13:29 ) was rather a small box (RVm [5] ), originally used for holding the mouthpieces of wind-instruments.
