Lock

Additional Links

(See KEY.) Usually a hollow wooden bolt passing through a groove into the socket in the doorpost. In the groove are small sliding pins which drop into holes in the bolt, so securing it. The key with its pins raises the sliding pins of the lock so that the bolt can be drawn back (Judges 3:23; Judges 3:25; Song of Solomon 5:5; Nehemiah 3:3).
