Dictionary Mode: easton:Weaving, weavers
Weaving, weavers @ Weaving was an art practised in very early times Exodus:35:35). The Egyptians were specially skilled in it Isaiah:19:9; Ezekiel:27:7), and some have regarded them as its inventors. In the wilderness, the Hebrews practised it Exodus:26:1 Exodus:26:8 Exodus:28:4 Exodus:28:39; Leviticus:13:47). It is referred to in subsequent times as specially the women's work ( 2Kings:23:7; Proverbs:31:13 Proverbs:31:24). No mention of the loom is found in Scripture, but we read of the "shuttle" Job:7:6), "the pin" of the beam Judges:16:14), "the web" (13, 14), and "the beam" ( 1Samuel:17:7; 2Samuel:21:19). The rendering, "with pining sickness," in Isaiah:38:12 (A.V.) should be, as in the Revised Version, "from the loom," or, as in the margin, "from the thrum." We read also of the "warp" and "woof" Leviticus:13:48-49, 51-53, 58, 59), but the Revised Version margin has, instead of "warp," "woven or knitted stuff."
