Stock

The trunk of a tree, Job 14:8, or a reproachful name for the idols carved out of it, Jeremiah 2:27; Hosea 4:12. The stocks in which Paul and Silas were fastened, Acts 16:24, were an instrument well known in Europe and America until recent times; consisting of two beams, the upper one movable, with grooves between them large enough to receive the ankles of the prisoner. The arms also were sometimes confined. Stocks were frequently erected in market places, that the insults of the populace might be added to the pain of confinement, Job 13:27; Jeremiah 20:2.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
STOCK

stok: In English Versions of the Bible is used for:

(1) The stem of a tree, whether alive (Job 14:8 Isaiah 40:24) or cut down (Isaiah 44:19; Wis 14:21). In Jeremiah 2:27; Jeremiah 3:9 Hosea 4:12, where the Hebrew has simply `ets, "wood," either meaning is possible (tree-worship? idolatry?). In Jeremiah 10:8 the text is doubtful.

(2) A family (Leviticus 25:47; 1Es 5:37 Tob 5:13 1Ma 12:21 2Ma 1:10; Acts 13:26 Philippians 3:5).

(3) Elsewhere (Job 13:27, etc.) the word refers to an instrument of punishment.

See PUNISHMENTS.
