From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    In the Authorized Version this word is found as the rendering of
    many different words. In Judg. 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 ("stuff" in 1
    Sam. 10:22) meaning implements, equipments, baggage. The phrase
    in Acts 21:15, "We took up our carriages," means properly, "We
    packed up our baggage," as in the Revised Version.
