Arrows

At first made of reeds, and then of wood tipped with iron. Arrows are sometimes figuratively put for lightning (Deuteronomy 32:23,42; Psalms 7:13; 18:14; 144:6; Zechariah 9:14). They were used in war as well as in the chase (Genesis 27:3; 49:23). They were also used in divination (Ezekiel 21:21).

The word is frequently employed as a symbol of calamity or disease inflicted by God (Job 6:4; 34:6; Psalms 38:2; Deuteronomy 32:23. Compare Ezekiel 5:16), or of some sudden danger (Psalms 91:5), or bitter words (Psalms 64:3), or false testimony (Proverbs 25:18).
