“(1 Sam. 17:6, A.V., after the LXX. and Vulg.), a kind of small” “shield. The margin has “gorget,” a piece of armour for the” throat. The Revised Version more correctly renders the Hebrew “word (kidon) by “javelin.” The same Hebrew word is used in Josh.” “8:18 (A.V., “spear;” R.V., “javelin”); Job 39:23 (A.V.,” “shield; R.V., “javelin”); 41:29 (A.V., “spear;” R.V.,” javelin).
