Hook: 1. Heb. hah, a "ring" inserted in the nostrils of animals to which a cord was fastened for the purpose of restraining them

(2 Kings 19:28; Isaiah 37:28,29; Ezekiel 29:4; 38:4) "The Orientals make use of this contrivance for curbing their work-beasts. When a beast becomes unruly they have only to draw the cord on one side, which, by stopping his breath, punishes him so effectually that after a few repetitions he fails not to become quite tractable whenever he begins to feel it" (Michaelis). The Song of Solomon God's agents are never beyond his control.

2. Hakkah, a fish "hook" (Job 41:2) Heb. Text, 40:25 (Isaiah 19:8)

(Habakkuk 1:15)

3. Vav, a "peg" on which the curtains of the tabernacle were hung

(Exodus 26:32)

4. Tsinnah, a fish-hooks (Amos 4:2)

5. Mazleg, flesh-hooks (1 Samuel 2:13,14) a kind of fork with three teeth for turning the sacrifices on the fire, etc.

6. Mazmeroth, pruning-hooks (Isaiah 2:4; Joel 3:10)

7. 'Agmon (Job 41:2) (Heb. Text 40:26) incorrectly rendered in the Authorized Version. Properly a rush-rope for binding animals, as in Revised Version margin.
