CHAIN is used in two different senses. 1 . Chains for securing prisoners are denoted by a variety of words in OT and NT, which are also rendered by ‘ bonds ’ or ‘fetters,’ although the monuments show that ropes were more generally used for this purpose. 2 . A chain of precious metal was worn as a sign of rank, as by Joseph and Daniel, or purely as an ornament. See Ornaments, § 2 .
