|BEAUTY AND BANDS |
bu'-ti, bandz (no`am, and chobhelim):
The names given in Zechariah 11:7,14 to two symbolical staves, the first signifying Yahweh's covenant of grace with the peoples, and the second representing the brotherhood of Judah and Israel. The breaking of the two staves is symbolic of the breaking of Yahweh's covenant and of the union between Judah and Israel.
