Ringstreaked

RINGSTREAKED

ring'-strekt (the King James Version and the English Revised Version ringstraked):

Genesis 30:35,39,40; 31:8 (twice),10,12 for `aqodh. In the context of Genesis 30:35, etc., `aqodh certainly denotes defective coloring of some sort, but the exact meaning of the word is uncertain. The translation "ringstreaked" ("marked with circular bands") comes from connecting the word with the Hebrew root `-q-d, "to bind" (Genesis 22:9), but this connection is dubious.
