     The following is the results of your search for weaving, weavers.

Weaving, Weavers: Weaving was an art practised in very early times (Exodus 35:35) The Egyptians were specially skilled in it (Isaiah 19:9; Ezekiel 27:7) and some have regarded them as its inventors. In the wilderness, the Hebrews practised it (Exodus 26:1,8; 28:4,39; Leviticus 13:47) It is referred to in subsequent times as specially the women's work (2 Kings 23:7; Proverbs 31:13,24) No mention of the loom is found in Scripture, but we read of the "shuttle" (Job 7:6) "the pin" of the beam (Judges 16:14) "the web" (Judges 16:13,14) and "the beam" (1 Samuel 17:7; 2 Samuel 21:19) The rendering, "with pining sickness," in (Isaiah 38:12) (A.V.) should be, as in the Revised Version, "from the loom," or, as in the margin, "from the thrum." We read also of the "warp" and "woof" (Leviticus 13:48,49,51-53,58,59) but the Revised Version margin has, instead of "warp," "woven or knitted stuff."
