Hook

  • Heb. hah, a "ring" inserted in the nostrils of animals to which a cord was fastened for the purpose of restraining them (2 Kings 19:28; Isaiah 37:28,29; Ezekiel 29:4; 38:4). "The Orientals make use of this contrivance for curbing their work-beasts...When a beast becomes unruly they have only to draw the cord on one side, which, by stopping his breath, punishes him so effectually that after a few repetitions he fails not to become quite tractable whenever he begins to feel it" (Michaelis). So God's agents are never beyond his control.

  • Hakkah, a fish "hook" (Job 41:2, Heb. Text, 40:25; Isaiah 19:8; Habakkuk 1:15).

  • Vav, a "peg" on which the curtains of the tabernacle were hung (Exodus 26:32).

  • Tsinnah, a fish-hooks (Amos 4:2).

  • Mazleg, flesh-hooks (1 Samuel 2:13,14), a kind of fork with three teeth for turning the sacrifices on the fire, etc.

  • Mazmeroth, pruning-hooks (Isaiah 2:4; Joel 3:10).

  • 'Agmon (Job 41:2, Heb. Text 40:26), incorrectly rendered in the Authorized Version. Properly a rush-rope for binding animals, as in Revised Version margin.
