Nail.

1. Of finger. (a) A nail or claw of man or animal.

(b) A point or style, for example, for writing; See Jeremiah 17:1.

2. For fastening. (a) A nail, Isaiah 11:7, a stake, Isaiah 33:20, also a tent-peg. Tent-pegs were usually of wood and of large size; but some times, as was the case with those used to fasten the curtains of the Tabernacle were of metal. Exodus 27:19; Exodus 38:20.

(b) A nail, primarily a point. We are told that David prepared iron for the nails to be used in the Temple; and as the Holy of Holies was plated with gold, the nails for fastening the plates, were probably of gold.
