(Heb. taphoph, Isaiah 3:16 ), taking affectedly short and quick steps. Luther renders the word by "wag" or "waggle," thus representing "the affected gait of coquettish females."
Taking short, quick steps; tripping.
Moreover the LORD saith, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched forth necks and wanton eyes, walking and MINCING as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet. ( Isaiah 3:16 )
"Taking short steps," "walking trippingly." Only in Isaiah 3:16, "walking and mincing as they go, and making a tinkling (a jingling of the metal anklets) with their feet." Compare OHL.
