A pointed instrument, eight feet long, often headed with iron (1 Samuel 13:21; Ecclesiastes 12:11). To "kick against the pricks" expresses unavailing resistance, as if cattle were to kick against the goads of their driver Who has them wholly in his power, as God has the recalcitrant sinner (Acts 9:5).
