the sheath for arrows

The Hebrew word (aspah) thus commonly rendered is found in Job 39:23; Psalm 127:5; Isa. 22:6; 49:2; Jer. 5:16; Lam. 3:13.

In Genesis 27:3 this word is the rendering of the Hebrew teli, which is supposed rather to mean a suspended weapon, literally “that which hangs from one.” i.e., is suspended from the shoulder or girdle.
