Lace

LACE

las (pathil, variously rendered in Genesis 38:18,25; Exodus 39:3; Numbers 15:38; 19:15; Judges 16:9; Ezekiel 40:3):

In modern English the noun "lace" usually denotes a delicate ornamental fabric, but in the word in the sense of "that which binds" is still in perfectly good use, especially in such combinations as "shoelace" etc. It is this latter significance that is found in Exodus 28:28 ("They shall bind .... with a lace of blue"); 28:37; 39:21,31, and in Sirach 6:30 the King James Version, klosma (the Revised Version (British and American) "riband").
