Aphel, to repair a wall, Ezra 4:12 comp. רָפָא. Hence
(1) a thread, a line, Judges 16:12; Ecclesiastes 4:12; Song of Solomon 4:3. A proverbial saying, Genesis 14:23, מִחוּט וְעַד שְׂרוֹךְ נַעַל “neither a thread nor a shoe-latchet,” i.e. not even the least or the most worthless thing. Similar is the Latin neque hilum (Lucr. iii. 784; Enn. ap. Varr. L. L. iv. 22), for neque filum, whence nihil. A similar proverb is used in Arabic لا فتيلا, see Hamasa, Schultens, p. 404.
(2) a rope, cord [collect. of No. 1 in Thes.], Joshua 2:18.
