 Hook
    (1.) Heb. hah, a "ring" inserted in the nostrils of animals to
    which a cord was fastened for the purpose of restraining them (2
    Kings 19:28; Isa. 37:28, 29; Ezek. 29:4; 38:4). "The Orientals
    make use of this contrivance for curbing their
    work-beasts...When a beast becomes unruly they have only to draw
    the cord on one side, which, by stopping his breath, punishes
    him so effectually that after a few repetitions he fails not to
    become quite tractable whenever he begins to feel it"
    (Michaelis). So God's agents are never beyond his control.
      (2.) Hakkah, a fish "hook" (Job 41:2, Heb. Text, 40:25; Isa.
    19:8; Hab. 1:15).
      (3.) Vav, a "peg" on which the curtains of the tabernacle were
    hung (Ex. 26:32).

    with three teeth for turning the sacrifices on the fire, etc.
      (6.) Mazmeroth, pruning-hooks (Isa. 2:4; Joel 3:10).
      (7.) 'Agmon (Job 41:2, Heb. Text 40:26), incorrectly rendered
