The sheath for arrows. The Hebrew word (aspah) thus commonly rendered is found in Job 39:23; Ps. 127:5; Isa. 22:6; 49:2; Jer. 5:16; Lam. 3:13. In Gen. 27:3 this word is the rendering of the “Hebrew teli, which is supposed rather to mean a suspended” “weapon, literally “that which hangs from one”, i.e., is” suspended from the shoulder or girdle.
