אָזֵן m. utensil, implement, prop. weapon (comp. Ch. אֲזֵנִין arms), see the root No. I. Deuteronomy 23:14 “and thou shalt have a spade עַל אֲזֵנֶךָ on thy implement;” many copies read עַל אֲזֵנֶיךָ “among thy utensils,” which I prefer. The same notion both of utensil and weapon is found in the word כְּלִי.
