Shaft

SHAFT

shaft:

Isaiah 49:2 for chets, "an arrow"; also Exodus 25:31; 37:17; Numbers 8:4 the King James Version for a part of the candlestick of the tabernacle somewhat vaguely designated by the word yarekh, "thigh." The context in the first 2 verses shows that the upright stem or "shaft" is intended, but in Numbers 8:4 a different context has caused the Revised Version (British and American) to substitute "base."

See also ARCHERY; ARMOR; ARMS.
