King James Version (KJV)

King James Bible KJV


The trust of the hypocrite is compared to the spider's web or house (Job 8:14). It is said of the wicked by Isaiah that they "weave the spider's web (59:5), i.e., their works and designs" "are, like the spider's web, vain and useless. The Hebrew word" "here used is 'akkabish, "a swift weaver." "In Prov. 30:28 a different Hebrew word (semamith) is used. It is "rendered in the Vulgate by stellio, and in the Revised Version" "by "lizard." It may, however, represent the spider, of which" "there are, it is said, about seven hundred species in Palestine."
