Easton's Bible Dictionary

Carriage:

In the Authorized Version this word is found as the rendering of many different words. In Jdg 18:21 it means valuables, wealth, or booty. In Isa 46:1 (R.V., "the things that ye carried about") the word means a load for a beast of burden. In 1 Sam. 17: 22 and Isa 10:28 it is the rendering of a word (in 1Sa 10:22) meaning implements, equipments, baggage. The phrase in Act 21:15, "We took up our carriages," means properly, "We packed up our baggage," as in the Revised Version.

International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia

Carriage:

kar'-ij (keli, kebhuddah, nesu'ah; episkeuasamenoi; the Revised Version (British and American) "We took up our baggage"; the American Revised Version, margin "made ready"): One or the other of the above words occurs in six different places and all have been translated in the King James Version by "carriage" in its obsolete meaning (Jud 18:21; 1Sa 17:22 (twice); Isa 10:28; 46:1; Ac 21:15). In the Revised Version (British and American) and the American Standard Revised Version these are translated by the more modern expressions "goods," "baggage," or "the things that you carried." In 1Sa 17:20 the King James Version margin "place of the carriage" occurs as the equivalent of "trench." The Hebrew ma'galah may mean "the place of wagons" as translated in the Revised Version (British and American), as it is not at all improbable that the encampment was surrounded by the baggage train.
