{1 Samuel 19:13} And Michal 4324 took 3947 z8799 x853 an image, 8655 and laid 7760 z8799 [it] in x413 the bed, 4296 and put 7760 z8804 a pillow 3523 of goats' 5795 [hair] for his bolster, 4763 and covered 3680 z8762 [it] with a cloth. 899
an image:
Heb. teraphim, "And Labanª wentª° to shearª°¹ his sheep:ª and Rachelª had stolenª°¹ the imagesª that¹ [were] her father's.ª" {Gen 31:19} *marg. "And the manª Micahª had an houseª of gods,ª and madeª° an ephod,ª and teraphim,ª and consecratedªª°¹ oneª of his sons,ª¹ who became¹ his priest.ª" {Jdg 17:5} + "Then answeredª° the fiveª men²¹ that wentª° to spy outª°¹ the countryª of Laish,ª and saidª° unto¹ their brethren,ª Do ye knowª° that¹ there isª in these¹ housesª an ephod,ª and teraphim,ª and a graven image,ª and a molten image?ª now¹ therefore considerª° what¹ ye have to do.ª°" {Jdg 18:14} + "And the fiveª men²¹ that went²°¹ to spy outª°¹ the landª went up,ª° [and] came inª° thither,¹ [and] tookª°¹ the graven image,ª and the ephod,ª and the teraphim,ª and the molten image:ª and the priestª stoodª° in the enteringª of the gateª with the sixª hundredª menª [that were] appointedª° with weaponsª of war.ª" {Jdg 18:17} + "For¹ the childrenª of Israelª shall abideª° manyª daysª without¹ a king,ª and without¹ a prince,ª and without¹ a sacrifice,ª and without¹ an image,ª and without¹ an ephod,ª and [without] teraphim:ª" {Hsa 3:4}
a pillow:
Rather, "the net-work of goat's hair at its (the Teraphim's) pillow;" for the kevir, (whence the Chaldee and Syriac kavreetho, a honey-comb, from its net-like form), seems to have been a kind of mosquito-net, which, says Dr. Shaw, is "a close curtain of gauze, used all over the East, by people of fashion, to keep out the flies." That they had such anciently cannot be doubted. Thus when Judith had beheaded Holofernes in his bed ("And Saulª said,ª° Bring hitherª° a burnt offeringª to¹ me, and peace offerings.ª And he offeredª° the burnt offering.ª" {1Sm 13:9} + "And Samuelª arose,ª° and gat him upª° from¹ Gilgalª unto Gibeahª of Benjamin.ª And Saulª numberedª°¹ the peopleª [that were] presentª° with¹ him, about sixª hundredª men.ª" {1Sm 13:15}) "she pulled down the canopy (or the mosquito net, το κωνωπειου, from κωνωψ, a gnat, or mosquito, whence our word canopy) wherein he did lie in his drunkenness, from the pillars."
