KJV translation of the Hebrew word translated as veils in modern translations of Ezekiel 13:18 ,Ezekiel 13:18,13:21 . Ezekiel compares the kerchiefs or veils used by women who prophesied “out of their own minds” to nets used to catch birds. According to this comparison, the kerchiefs were like nets used to catch the souls of persons. God declared through Ezekiel that he would free His people from the snares these women set for them.
