NET

1. Loosely woven mesh of twine or cord used for catching birds, fish, or other prey. a. Fishing nets were of two basic types. The first was a cone-shaped net with leads around its wide mouth used for hand casting (Matthew 4:18-21; Mark 1:16-19). The second was the seine net, a large draw with floats at its head and lead sinkers at its foot. Such a net was often hauled ashore to empty (Isaiah 19:8; Ezekiel 26:5,Ezekiel 26:14; Ezekiel 32:3; Ezekiel 47:10; Matthew 13:47). In the majority of Old Testament cases the seine net is a figure for judgment at the hands of ruthless military forces. b. Fowling nets frequently had hinged mouths which could clamp shut when sprung (Proverbs 1:17; Hosea 7:11-12). c. Nets of unspecified type are frequently used as figures of the Lord's chastisement (Job 19:6; Psalms 66:11; Lamentations 1:13; Ezekiel 12:13) or of the plots of the wicked (Psalms 9:15; Psalms 31:4; Psalms 35:7-8). 2. Netting or network refers to grillwork used as part of the ornament of the altar of burnt offering (Exodus 27:4-5; Exodus 38:4) and of the capitals of the Temple columns (1 Kings 7:17-20). The grill-work of the altar perhaps functioned as a vent.
