Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

קֶשֶׁת pl. קְשָׁתוֹת, constr. קַשְׁתוֹת, comm. (m. 2 Samuel 1:22 f. Psalms 18:35).

(1)  a bow (from the root קוֹשׁ, of the form שַׁחַת, נַחַת, סֹלֶת; although ת servile afterwards becomes a radical letter, compare Aram. ܙܶܬܘܰܫܶܛ to shoot, see Lehrg. p. 439, 474. Arabic قَوْسُ bow)

(a) for shooting arrows, Genesis 21:16; Isaiah 13:18; Job 20:24, and frequently. דָּרַךְ קֶשֶׁת to draw a bow, see דָּרַךְ. בֶּן־קֶשֶׁת the son of a bow, i.e. an arrow, Job 41:20. Meton. bow is used

(α) for archers, אַנְשֵׁי קֶשֶׁת Isaiah 21:17, 22:3 Psalms 78:57, where קֶשֶׁת רְמִיָּה are deceitful archers (who deceive by a simulated flight). Compare קָצִיר used for reapers.

(β) the song of the bow, 2 Samuel 1:18, i.e. David’s elegy, composed on Saul and Jonathan, in which mention is made of the bow, verse 22 2 Samuel 1:22 on this manner of inscribing poems and books, used by the orientals, see Jones, on Asiatic Poetry, p. 269; my Comment. on Isaiah 22:1. In other places bow is used metaph. for strength and power; hence to break any one’s bow, i.e. to break his strength, to overturn his power, Hosea 1:5; Jeremiah 49:35; Job 29:20, “my bow is strengthened in my hand,” i.e. my strength increases; Genesis 49:24.

(b) the heavenly bow, the rainbow, Gr. τόξον, Genesis 9:13, seq.; Ezekiel 1:28. Hence denom.
