the sheath for arrows. The Hebrew word (aspah) thus commonly
rendered is found in Job 39:23; Ps. 127:5; Isa. 22:6; 49:2; Jer.
5:16; Lam. 3:13. In Gen. 27:3 this word is the rendering of the
Hebrew "teli", which is supposed rather to mean a suspended
weapon, literally "that which hangs from one", i.e., is
suspended from the shoulder or girdle.
