Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
lieth [heb] is turned
ink-horn. Keseth, (in Chaldee, kista, Syriac, kesto, Ethiopic, kasut,) denotes a bottle or vessel to hold any fluid; and being here united to sophair, a writer, is not improperly rendered as an ink-horn: so one of the editions of Aquila, , and Vulgate, atramentarium. Dr. Shaw informs us, that among the Moors, ' the Hojas, i. e. writers or secretaries, suspend their ink-horns in their girdles.'
by his side [heb] upon his loins
