Nail: For fastening.

1. Hebrew yathed, "piercing," a peg or nail of any material

(Ezekiel 15:3) more especially a tent-peg (Exodus 27:19; 35:18; 38:20) with one of which Jael (q.v.) pierced the temples of Sisera

(Judges 4:21,22) This word is also used metaphorically (Zechariah 10:4) for a prince or counsellor, just as "the battle-bow" represents a warrior.

2. Masmer, a "point," the usual word for a nail. The words of the wise are compared to "nails fastened by the masters of assemblies" (Ecclesiastes 12:11) A.V. The Revised Version reads, "as nails well fastened are the words of the masters," etc. Others (as Plumptre) read, "as nails fastened are the masters of assemblies" (comp.) (Isaiah 22:23; Ezra 9:8) David prepared nails for the temple (1 Chronicles 22:3; 2 Chronicles 3:9)

3. The nails by which our Lord was fixed to the cross are mentioned

(John 20:25; Colossians 2:14)

4. Nail of the finger (Heb. tsipporen, "scraping"). To "pare the nails" is in (Deuteronomy 21:12) (marg., "make," or "dress," or "suffer to grow") one of the signs of purification, separation from former heathenism (comp.) (Leviticus 14:8; Numbers 8:7) In (Jeremiah 17:1) this word is rendered "point."
