It was on such that the captives hung their harps when in captivity, of which the Psalmist spoke prophetically. Leviticus 23:40 ; Job 40:22 ; Psalm 137:2 ; Isaiah 15:7 ; Isaiah 44:4 . In Ezekiel 17:5 the word is tsaphtsaphah, supposed by some to be the Arabic safsâf, a willow or osier which grows by the water.
