JAW

Either of two boney structures that border the mouth and bear the teeth. The taking of captives in war is sometimes pictured using the images of animals led with bridles in their jaws (Isaiah 30:28) or fish carried away with hooks in theirs (Ezekiel 29:4; Ezekiel 38:4). According to one understanding of Hosea 11:4, God, pictured as a farmer, “lifts the yoke from their jaws,” that is, looses the yoke so that the oxen might better feed.
