Needle

Used only in the proverb, "to pass through a needle's eye" (Matthew 19:24 ; Mark 10:25 ; Luke 18:25 ). Some interpret the expression as referring to the side gate, close to the principal gate, usually called the "eye of a needle" in the East; but it is rather to be taken literally. The Hebrew females were skilled in the use of the needle (Exodus 28:39 ; 26:36 ; Judges 5:30 ).
