RINGSTREAKED

ring'-strekt (the King James Version and the English Revised Version ringstraked): Gen 30:35,39,40; 31:8 (twice),10,12 for `aqodh. In the context of Gen 30:35, etc., `aqodh certainly denotes defective coloring of some sort, but the exact meaning of the word is uncertain. The translation "ringstreaked" ("marked with circular bands") comes from connecting the word with the Hebrew root `-q-d, "to bind" (Gen 22:9), but this connection is dubious.
