kimah. Amos 5:8; Job 9:9; Job 38:31; literally, "the heap (Arabic knot) of stars." "Canst thou bind (is it thou that bindest) the sweet influences (the Pleiades rise in joyous spring, ma'adanot; but Gesenius, transposing ma'anadoth, translated "bands") of Pleiades?" Madler of Dorpat discovered that the whole solar system is moving forward round Alcyone, the brightest star in Pleiades. The Pleiades are "bound" together with such amazing attractive energy that they draw our whole planetary system and sun round them at the rate of 422,000 miles a day in the orbit which will take thousands of years before completion.
