Shoe
        Of various forms, from the mere sandal (q.v.) to the complete
        covering of the foot. The word so rendered (A.V.) in Deut.
        33:25, "min'al", "a bar," is derived from a root meaning "to
        bolt" or "shut fast," and hence a fastness or fortress. The
        verse has accordingly been rendered "iron and brass shall be thy
        fortress," or, as in the Revised Version, "thy bars [marg.,
        "shoes"] shall be iron and brass."
