FISHHOOK

A curved or bent device of bone or iron in biblical times used for catching or holding fish (Job 41:1-2; Isaiah 19:8—KJV, “angle”; Matthew 17:27). Habakkuk described God's people as helpless fish who would be captured by hooks (Matthew 1:15) and nets. Amos 4:2 refers to the practice of ancient conquerors of leading captives with hooks through their lips. Such was the fate of Manasseh according to one interpretation (2 Chronicles 33:11, NAS, NIV, TEV).
