Target [N]

( 1 Samuel 17:6 , A.V., after the LXX. and Vulg.), a kind of small shield. The margin has "gorget," a piece of armour for the throat. The Revised Version more correctly renders the Hebrew word (kidon) by "javelin." The same Hebrew word is used in Joshua 8:18 (A.V., "spear;" RSV, "javelin"); Job 39:23 (A.V., "shield;" RSV, "javelin"); 41:29 (A.V., "spear;" RSV, "javelin").
