Quiver

Quiver [N] [S]

the sheath for arrows. The Hebrew word (aspah) thus commonly rendered is found in Job 39:23 ; Psalms 127:5 ; Isaiah 22:6 ; 49:2 ; Jeremiah 5:16 ; Lamentations 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.
