HOOK

A curved or bent device for catching, holding, or pulling. Some biblical uses, for example, hanging curtains (Exodus 26:32; Exodus 27:10) or fishing (Isaiah 19:8; Job 40:24; Habakkuk 1:15; Matthew 17:27), are familiar today. (KJV often uses angle.) Less familiar is the practice of ancient conquerors who led their captives by means of hooks or thongs put through their noses or jaws (2 Chronicles 33:11; Ezekiel 38:4; Amos 4:2).
