A case or covering for a sword.
O thou sword of the LORD, how long will it be ere thou be quiet? put up thyself into thy SCABBARD, rest, and be still. How can it be quiet, seeing the LORD hath given it a charge against Ashkelon, and against the sea shore? there hath he appointed it. ( Jeremiah 47:6-7 )
