pen´dant (from French from Latin pendeo , "to hang"): Not in the King James Version. Twice in the Revised Version (British and American). (1) נטיפות , netı̄phōth (the King James Version "collars"), ornaments of the Midianites captured by Gideon ( Judges 8:26 ). (2) נטפות , netı̄phōth (the King James Version "chains"), an article of feminine apparel (Isaiah 3:19 ). The reference seems to be (Cheyne, "Isaiah" Polychrome Bible ( HDB , III, 739)) to ear-drops, pearl or gold ornaments resembling a drop of Water, fastened, probably, to the lobe of the ear.
