A rounded implement of wood or stone used for pounding, bruising, or powdering materials in a mortar. Used only in Proverbs 27:22. The assonance of CS:GreekIT+loimosIT-/CS and CS:GreekIT+limosIT-/CS in these passages (CS:GreekIT+loimosIT-/CS is omitted in the Revised Version (British and American) passage for Mt) occurs in several classical passages, e.g. Herodotus vii.171. The pestilence is said to walk in darkness (Psalms 91:6) on account of its sudden onset out of obscurity not associated with any apparent cause.
