Celsius and Hiller conjecture that {akrabbim} denotes a thorny kind of shrub, whose prickles are of a venomous nature, called by the Arabs {scorpion thorns}, from the exquisite pain which they inflict.

Isidore, and after him Calmet and others, assert that the {scorpion} was a sort of severe {whip}, the lashes of which were armed with knots or points that sunk into and tore the flesh.
