stok: In English Versions of the Bible is used for:
(1) The stem of a tree, whether alive (Job 14:8; Isa 40:24) or cut down (Isa 44:19; The Wisdom of Solomon 14:21). In Jer 2:27; 3:9; Hos 4:12, where the Hebrew has simply `ets, "wood," either meaning is possible (tree-worship? idolatry?). In Jer 10:8 the text is doubtful.
(2) A family (Lev 25:47; 1 Esdras 5:37; Tobit 5:13; 1 Macc 12:21; 2 Macc 1:10; Acts 13:26; Phil 3:5).
(3) Elsewhere (Job 13:27, etc.) the word refers to an instrument of punishment.
