International Standard Bible EncyclopediaCLAW
klo (parcah, literally, "hoof"): One of the marks of a "clean" animal is stated thus: "Every beast that parteth the hoof, and cleaveth the cleft into two claws, ye shall eat" (Deuteronomy 14:6 the King James Version; the Revised Version (British and American) "hath the hoof cloven in two"). See CHEW; CUD. the King James Version uses the word "claws" where the Revised Version (British and American) supplies "hoofs" in Zechariah 11:16, "and will tear their hoofs in pieces," as the sheep are being overdriven. In the only other passage containing the word (Daniel 4:33) there is no Hebrew equivalent in the original-"his nails like birds' (claws)."
