Withes, Withs, Green

withs, (yetharim lachim, margin "new bowstrings," the King James Version margin "new (moist) cords" (Jg 16:7); Septuagint neura hugra): The material with which Samson was bound by Delilah (Jg 16:8) was probably some moist "gut" such as was used for bowstrings. Compare metharim, "bowstrings" (Ps 21:12; yether, Job 30:11; Ps 11:2); lahim, translated "green," means "fresh," "sappy" or "moist."
