At first made of reeds, and then of wood tipped with iron. Arrows are sometimes figuratively put for lightning (Deut 32:23, Deut 32:42; Ps 713; Ps 1814; Ps 1446; Zech 9:14). They were used in war as well as in the chase (Gen 27:3; Gen 49:23). They were also used in divination (Ezek 21:21).

The word is frequently employed as a symbol of calamity or disease inflicted by God (Job 6:4; Job 34:6; Ps 382; Deut 32:23. Comp. Ezek 5:16), or of some sudden danger (Ps 915), or bitter words (Ps 643), or false testimony (Prov 25:18).
