Nail

A — 1: ἧλος

(Strong's #2247 — Noun Masculine — helos — hay'-los )

occurs in the remarks of Thomas regarding the print of the nails used in Christ's crucifixion, John 20:25 .

B — 1: προσηλόω

(Strong's #4338 — Verb — proseloo — pros-ay-lo'-o )

"to nail to" (pros, "to," and a verbal form of A), is used in Colossians 2:14 , in which the figure of a bond (ordinances of the Law) is first described as cancelled, and then removed; the idea in the verb itself is not that of the cancellation, to which the taking out of the way was subsequent, but of nailing up the removed thing in triumph to the cross. The death of Christ not only rendered the Law useless as a means of salvation, but gave public demonstration that it was so.
