International Standard Bible Encyclopedia

stak: Isaiah 33:20; Isaiah 54:2 for yathedh, "tent-pin," or, perhaps, "tent-pole" (Exodus 27:19 Judges 4:21, etc.). The King James Version Sirach 43:19, "The hoar frost,.... being congealed, lieth on the top of sharp stakes," is of course meaningless. the Revised Version (British and American) "When it is congealed, it is as points of thorns" renders the Greek very exactly, but the Hebrew would indicate for the original meaning "forms frost-flowers of sapphire."
