Hook, Hooks:

Various kinds of hooks are noticed in the Bible, of which the following are the most important:

(1.) Fishing hooks (Job 41:2; Isaiah 19:8); Habakkuk 1:15.

(2.) A ring, such as in our country is placed through the nose of a bull, and similarly used in the East for leading about lions-(Ezekiel 19:4) where the Authorized Version has "with chains-camels and other animals. Called "thorn" in Job 41:2. A similar method was adopted for leading prisoners (2 Chronicles 33:11).

(3.) The hooks of the pillars of the tabernacle (Exodus 26:32; 26:37; 27:10) ff.; Exodus 38:13 ff.

(4.) A vinedressers pruning‐hook (Isaiah 2:4; 18:5; Micah 4:3; Joel 3:10).

(5.) A flesh‐hook for getting up the joints of meat out of the boiling‐pot (Exodus 27:3; 1 Samuel 2:13-14).

(6.) Probably "hooks" used for the purpose of hanging up animals to flay them (Ezekiel 40:43).


The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
