Weaver, Weaving

Resource Toolbox

This art was early practised in Egypt, and though the looms were of the simplest description, some Egyptian productions were very fine. Weaving was known to the Israelites, and by it they produced fine work for the tabernacle and the priests' robes. A weaver's beam is often referred to as a heavy thing for a man to use as a weapon. Exodus 28:32 ; Exodus 35:35 ; Exodus 39:22,27 ; 1 Samuel 17:7 ; Job 7:6 , etc. Of the wicked it is said, they "weave the spider's web . . . . their webs shall not become garments." Isaiah 59:5,6 .
