Bow @ The bow was in use in early times both in war and in the chase Genesis:21:20 Genesis:27:3 Genesis:48:22 ). The tribe of Benjamin were famous for the use of the bow ( 1Chronicles:8:40 1Chronicles:12:2; 2Chronicals:14:8 2Chronicals:17:17); so also were the Elamites Isaiah:22:6) and the Lydians Jeremiah:46:9). The Hebrew word commonly used for bow means properly to tread ( 1Chronicles:5:18 1Chronicles:8:40), and hence it is concluded that the foot was employed in bending the bow. Bows of steel (correctly "copper") are mentioned ( 2Samuel:22:35; Psalms:18:34). The arrows were carried in a quiver Genesis:27:3; Isaiah:22:6 Isaiah:49:2; Psalms:127:5). They were apparently sometimes shot with some burning material attached to them Psalms:120:4). The bow is a symbol of victory Psalms:7:12). It denotes also falsehood, deceit Psalms:64:3-4; Hosea:7:16; Jeremiah:9:3). "The use of the bow" in 2Samuel:1:18 (A.V.) ought to be "the song of the bow," as in the Revised Version.

Bowing is also frequently mentioned as an act of adoration to idols Joshua:23:7; 2Kings:5:18; Judges:2:19; Isaiah:44:15), and to God Joshua:5:14; Psalms:22:29 Psalms:72:9; Micah:6:6; Psalms:95:6; Ephesians:3:14).
Bowl @ The sockets of the lamps of the golden candlestick of the tabernacle are called bowls Exodus:25:31-33, 34; 37:17-19, 20); the same word so rendered being elsewhere rendered "cup" Genesis:44:2 Genesis:44:12, 16), and wine "pot" Jeremiah:35:5).
