Holman Bible Dictionary
A thrusting or throwing weapon used for medium range combat either similar to a spear or javelin (2 Samuel 18:14
) or else an arrow (Proverbs 7:23
; Ephesians 6:16
). The use of flaming arrows (Psalm 7:13
; Psalm 120:4
) becomes in Ephesians 6:16
a picture of the assault of the evil one on believers. KJV uses darts to translate two different Hebrew words, the first meaning “stick” or “staff” and the second, “arrows.”
