    Abstract

    The interpretation of Hebrew פֶּלֶךְ as a spindle is beyond doubt in Proverbs 31:19. In 2 Samuel 3:29, the interpretation of פֶּלֶךְ as a spindle is also the most convincing option. This interpretation is confirmed by most of the ancient translations and the cognates in other Semitic languages. The interpretation as a walking stick (see Septuagint) lacks a lexicographical basis.
