Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

שֵׁן followed by Makk. שֶׁן, with suffix שִׁנּוֹ comm. (m. signif. No. 2, 1 Samuel 14:5, f. Proverbs 25:19)

(1)  a tooth. (Arab. سِنُّ id. There is indeed in Hebrew the root שָׁנַן, to which this word might be referred; but I prefer to regard it as a primitive, since a tooth is called in very many languages by the syllable den (dent), zen, as the Sanscr. danta, Zend. dentâno, Pers. دندان, Gr. ὀδούς for ὀδόνς, Lat. den-s, Goth. tunthus, Fris. tan.) Exodus 21:24, 27 Exodus 21:27. Specially the tooth of an elephant, ivory (more fully שֶׁנְהַבִּים, which see), 1 Kings 10:18; Song of Solomon 5:14. בָּתֵּי שֵׁן palaces of ivory, i.e. with walls covered with ivory, Amos 3:15; Psalms 45:9.-Dual שִׁנַּיִם teeth (prop. the double row of teeth), Genesis 49:12; Amos 4:6 also, for the pl. שְׁלשׁ שִׁנַּיִם three teeth, 1 Samuel 2:13. Job 13:14, אֶשָּׂא בְשָׂרִי בְשִׁנַּי “I carry my flesh (i.e. my life) in my teeth,” i.e. I expose it to the greatest danger, as any thing held in the teeth may easily drop; comp. a similar proverbial phrase, Judges 12:3, remarked on above, under כַּף No. 1, b.

(2) a sharp rock, from the resemblance to a tooth, 1 Samuel 14:4; Job 39:28. Syr. ܫܶܢ̈ܬܳܐܳ crags. Hence

[Shen], pr.n. of a place, prob. of a rock, 1 Samuel 7:12.

[שֵׁן Ch. i.q. Heb. No. 1, Daniel 7:5,, 19.]
