"thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow"
The only occurrence of the masculine noun tel-ee is used to refer to Esau's weapons (see also Archers).
"And it came to pass, that when Isaac [see also Isaac's Faith And Obedience] was old, and his eyes were dim, so that he could not see, he called Esau his eldest son, and said unto him, My son: and he said unto him, Behold, here am I. And he said, Behold now, I am old, I know not the day of my death: Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison"
All other Biblical references to a "quiver" translate the Hebrew feminine noun ash-paw, which is sometimes used to refer to an actual container for arrows, as in these examples:
"The quiver rattleth against him, the glittering spear and the shield." (Job 39:23 KJV)
The Hebrew feminine noun ash-paw, while translated as "quiver," is however also sometimes used in ways that make its classification as a feminine noun more obvious, as in these two examples.
"Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The Lord [see also YHVH, Adonai, Jehovah, LORD] hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. And he hath made my mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of his hand hath he hid me, and made me a polished shaft; in his quiver [ash-paw] hath he hid me" (Isaiah 49:1-2 KJV)
Fact Finder: In Prophecy, the true Jesus Christ is described as returning with a great sword (Revelation 19:15). What different sort of weapon is the end-time false Christ (see also False Christs) metaphorically described as having?
