German Luke, Loch (?)), an opening, aperture (used of a window, Song of Solomon 5:4): of fissures in the earth, James 3:11 (Exodus 33:22); of caves in rocks or mountains, Hebrews 11:38 (here R. V. holes); Obadiah 1:3. (Of various other kinds of holes and openings, in Aristophanes, Aristotle, others.)
