A fish hook.
The fishers also shall mourn, and all they that cast ANGLE into the brooks shall lament, and they that spread nets upon the waters shall languish. ( Isaiah 19:8 )
Used in Isaiah 19:8 for a Hebrew noun that is rendered "hook" in Job 41:1: "The fishers shall lament, and all they that cast angle (hook) into the Nile shall mourn." For a striking figurative use of it see Habakkuk 1:15 where, speaking of the wicked devouring the righteous, "making men as the fishes of the sea," the prophet says: "They take up all of them with the angle, they catch them in their net" (the Revised Version (British and American) uses singular).
