At first made of reeds, and then of wood tipped with iron. Arrows are sometimes figuratively put for lightning (Deuteronomy 32:23,42; Psalm 7:13; 18:14; 144:6; Zechariah 9:14 ). They were used in war as well as in the chase (Genesis 27:3; 49:23 ). They were also used in divination (Ezekiel 21:21 ).

The word is frequently employed as a symbol of calamity or disease inflicted by God (Job 6:4; 34:6; Psalm 38:2; Deuteronomy 32:23 . Compare Ezekiel 5:16 ), or of some sudden danger (Psalm 91:5 ), or bitter words (Psalm 64:3 ), or false testimony (Proverbs 25:18 ).
