HANDLE

han'-d'-l (kaph): The noun occurs once in Song 5:5, "handles of the bolt" (the King James Version "lock"). The verb "handle" represents several Hebrew ('achaz, mashakh, taphas, etc.) and Greek (thiggano, Col 2:21; pselaphao, Lk 24:39; 1 Jn 1:1) words in the King James Version, but is also sometimes substituted in the Revised Version (British and American) for other renderings in the King James Version, as in Song 3:8 for "hold"; in Lk 20:11, "handled shamefully," for "entreated shamefully"; in 2 Tim 2:15, "handling aright," for "rightly dividing," etc.
