International Standard Bible Encyclopedia

(yathedh, from yathadh, "to drive in a peg"(?)): A cylindrical piece of wood or metal (e.g. brass, Exodus 27:19) such as that used by weavers in beating up the woof in the loom (Judges 16:14, where Delilah fastened Samson's hair with the "pin"); or as a peg for hanging (Ezekiel 15:3; compare Isaiah 22:23 Ezra 9:8); or as a tent-pin, such as those used in the tabernacle (Exodus 27:19; Exodus 35:18; Exodus 38:20, 31; 39:40 Numbers 3:37; Numbers 4:32 Judges 4:21, where the King James Version translates "nail," the Revised Version (British and American) "tent-pin"; compare Judges 5:26, where Hebrew has the same word, English Versions of the Bible "nail"). The tent-pin, like that of today, was probably sharpened at one end (Judges 4:21) and so shaped at the other as to permit the attaching of the cords so frequently mentioned in the same connection (Exodus 35:18; Exodus 39:40 Numbers 3:37; Numbers 4:32; compare Isaiah 33:20). From the acts of driving in the tent-pin (Taqa`) and pulling it out (nasa') are derived the technical Hebrew terms for pitching a tent and for breaking camp.
