Weaver; Weaving

Concise Bible Dictionary:

This art was early practiced in Egypt, and though the looms were of the simplest description, some Egyptian productions were very fine. Weaving was known to the Israelites, and by it they produced fine work for the tabernacle and the priests’ robes. A weaver’s beam is often referred to as a heavy thing for a man to use as a weapon (Ex. 28:3232And there shall be an hole in the top of it, in the midst thereof: it shall have a binding of woven work round about the hole of it, as it were the hole of an habergeon, that it be not rent. (Exodus 28:32); Ex. 35:3535Them hath he filled with wisdom of heart, to work all manner of work, of the engraver, and of the cunning workman, and of the embroiderer, in blue, and in purple, in scarlet, and in fine linen, and of the weaver, even of them that do any work, and of those that devise cunning work. (Exodus 35:35); Ex. 39:22,2722And he made the robe of the ephod of woven work, all of blue. (Exodus 39:22)
27And they made coats of fine linen of woven work for Aaron, and for his sons, (Exodus 39:27)
; 1 Sam. 17:77And the staff of his spear was like a weaver's beam; and his spear's head weighed six hundred shekels of iron: and one bearing a shield went before him. (1 Samuel 17:7); Job 7:66My days are swifter than a weaver's shuttle, and are spent without hope. (Job 7:6), etc). Of the wicked it is said, they “weave the spider’s web.... their webs shall not become garments” (Isa. 59:5-65They 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. 6Their webs shall not become garments, neither shall they cover themselves with their works: their works are works of iniquity, and the act of violence is in their hands. (Isaiah 59:5‑6)).
