han'-d'-l (kaph):

The noun occurs once in Song of Solomon 5:5, "handles of the bolt" (the King James Version "lock"). The verb "handle" represents several Hebrew ('achaz, mashakh, taphas, etc.) and Greek (thiggano, Colossians 2:21; pselaphao, Luke 24:39; 1 John 1:1) words in the King James Version, but is also sometimes substituted in the Revised Version (British and American) for other renderings in the King James Version, as in Song of Solomon 3:8 for "hold"; in Luke 20:11, "handled shamefully," for "entreated shamefully"; in 2 Timothy 2:15, "handling aright," for "rightly dividing," etc.
