ROPE [ISBE]

ROPE - rop: Used in the Old Testament for chebhel, "that which binds" (2 Sam 17:13, etc.), and for `abhoth, "that which is woven" (Jdg 15:13, etc.). In neither word is any specified thickness or strength connoted, and chebhel is translated equally well by "line" (2 Sam 8:2, etc.) or "cord" (Josh 2:15, etc.), and `abhoth by "cord" (Ps 118:27, etc.), as best suits the context. Similarly in the New Testament the word schoinion, literally, "made of rushes" can mean the rope by which a boat is fastened (Acts 27:32) or small cords suitable for a whip (Jn 2:15). The usual material for ropes was certainly flax (hemp), but the Egyptians, and so possibly the Hebrews, at times made ropes of leathern thongs.

See CORD; LINE; SHIPS AND BOATS, III, 2.
