Nail

Additional Links

The "nail" with which Jael killed Sisera was rather a tent-pin, such as is driven into the ground in order to fasten the cords of the tent, Exodus 27:19 Judges 4:21-22 . Sometimes the Hebrew word is used for the wooden pins or iron spikes firmly inwrought into the walls of a building, Ezra 9:8 Ezekiel 15:3 . The word implies fixedness, Isaiah 22:23; and a firm support, Zechariah 10:4 . Another Hebrew word describes the golden and ornamental nails of the temple, etc., 2 Chronicles 3:9 Ecclesiastes 12:11 Isaiah 41:7 Jeremiah 10:4 .
