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
(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
(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."
