Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

נִדְנֶה m. Chald. the sheath of a sword (so called from its flexibility, see the root. [In Thes. this word is not referred to any root, and the etymology which had been here suggested is spoken of slightingly]; there are also found in Ch. נְדַן, and נִדְנָה, and לְדַן, לִדְנָא, with He parag, of the form לִבְנֶה, אַרְיֵה). Used figuratively of the body, as being the sheath and envelope of the soul, Daniel 7:15 “my spirit was grieved in the midst of my sheath,” i.e. body, בְּגוֹ נִדְנֶה. The same metaphor is used by Plin. H.N. vii. 52 s. 53, “donec cremato eo inimici remeanti animœ velut vaginam ademerint;” and also by a certain philosopher, who was despised by Alexander the Great on account of the ugliness of his face; who is said to have answered, “the body of a man is nothing but the sheath of a sword, in which the soul is hidden as in a sheath;” see d’Herbelot, Biblioth. Orientale, p. 642. A similar use is made of the word σκεῦος by Ælian. Hist. Anim. xvii. 11.
