        (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; Isa. 37:28, 29; Ezek. 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). So God's agents are never beyond his control.
        (2.) Hakkah, a fish "hook" (Job 41:2, Heb. Text, 40:25; Isa.
        19:8; Hab. 1:15).
        (3.) Vav, a "peg" on which the curtains of the tabernacle were
        hung (Ex. 26:32).
        (4.) Tsinnah, a fish-hooks (Amos 4:2).
        (5.) Mazleg, flesh-hooks (1 Sam. 2:13, 14), a kind of fork
        with three teeth for turning the sacrifices on the fire, etc.
        (6.) Mazmeroth, pruning-hooks (Isa. 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.
