The ancient pen was a stylus of hardened iron, Jeremiah 17:1 , sometimes pointed with diamond, for writing on hard substances, like metallic plates; when waxen tablets were used, the stylus had one end made broad and smooth, for erasing errors, 2 Kings 21:13 . For parchment, cloth, and similar substances, a reed pen was used, or a fine hair pencil, with ink, Judges 5:14 Job 19:24 Isaiah 8:1 Jeremiah 36:23 3 John 1:13 .
