Spider

1. akkabish. This is known to be the spider by the web being referred to, which, as being very frail, illustrates the trust of the hypocrite, also the weaving of the wicked, which will not supply them with a garment (Job 8:1414Whose hope shall be cut off, and whose trust shall be a spider's web. (Job 8:14); Isa. 59:55They hatch cockatrice' eggs, and weave the spider's web: he that eateth of their eggs dieth, and that which is crushed breaketh out into a viper. (Isaiah 59:5)).
2. semamith. This is supposed to refer to a lizard, which has wide feet like hands, by which it holds fast to the wall while pursuing its prey. It is translated “lizard” in the RV; but others prefer some species of spider (Prov. 30:2828The spider taketh hold with her hands, and is in kings' palaces. (Proverbs 30:28)).
