Badger Skins

BADGER SKINS [SMITH]

There is much obscurity as to the meaning of the word tachash , rendered "badger" in the Authorized Version, (Exodus 25:5; 35:7) etc. The ancient versions seem nearly all agreed that it denotes not an animal but a color, either black or sky-blue. The badger is not found in the Bible lands. The Arab duchash or tufchash denotes a dolphin, including seals and cetaceans. The skins referred to are probably those of these marine animals, some of which are found in the Red Sea. The skin of the Halicore , one of these, from its hardness would be well suited for making soles for shoes. (Ezekiel 16:10)
