Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

גִּיד an unused root, having the Signification to bind, to couple, like the Arab. قاد Med. Ye Conj. II. to bind with fetters, قَيْدُ a bond, a fetter, a thong, and with a prefixed guttural עָקַד, אָכַד اكد, אָגַד (perhaps אָחַד, אָחַז). In the western languages compare the root gaden, gatten, i.e. to couple; whence Gatte, Gattung, Kette, (catena), etc. Hence

גִּיד m.

(1)  a thread, a thong, Isaiah 48:4, of a stiff-necked people, גִּיד בַּרְזֶל עָרְפֶּךָ “thy neck is an iron thread,” or rod.

(2) a nerve, tendon, Ch. גִּידָא, Syr. ܓܝܳܕܐܳ, Gen. 32:33 pl. Ezekiel 37:8; Job 10:11, 40:17.
