Target

(1 Sam. 17:6, A.V., after the LXX. and Vulg.), a kind of small
shield. The margin has "gorget," a piece of armour for the
throat. The Revised Version more correctly renders the Hebrew
word (kidon) by "javelin." The same Hebrew word is used in Josh.
8:18 (A.V., "spear;" R.V., "javelin"); Job 39:23 (A.V.,
"shield;" R.V., "javelin"); 41:29 (A.V., "spear;" R.V.,
"javelin").
