(in the plur. סִירוֹת דּוּגָה thorns [as often rendered] of fishing; Sept. at random λέβηται ἔμπυροι Vulg. equally so olle ferventes, both taking the term in the sense of pots, contrary to the synonymous ענּוֹת , "hooks," of the other hemistich), used figuratively of an instrument of control (Amos 4:2), after the analogy of animals which were tamed by putting hooks and rings in their noses (comp. Isaiah 37:29; Ezekiel 39:4; Job 40:26; see Oedmann, Sammnl. v,- 5).' Others, as Doderlein (in loc.), prefer to retain the simple meaning of thorns, as referring to pastoral customs. (See FISHING).
