The Axe. The word Axe appears 11 times in the Bible
An axe is a tool used to shape wood or other materials. It consists of a handle attached to a head, usually made of metal, with one or more sharp edges. The head is attached to the handle using a variety of methods, including rivets, bolts, or welding.
Axeheads were made from a variety of materials, including stone, bronze, and iron. The type of material used depended on the intended use of the axe and the availability of resources. For example, stone axe heads were used for shaping wood while bronze axe heads were better suited for chopping through tree branches or felling trees. Iron axe heads were primarily used for warfare because they could deal more damage than their stone or bronze counterparts.
The first recorded use of an axe was by the ancient Egyptians who used them for shipbuilding and carpentry. In fact, many Egyptian tombs have been found with axes placed inside them as burial items. The ancient Greeks also utilized axes in their shipbuilding endeavors as well as in warfare. One famous incident involving an axe took place during the Trojan War when Achilles killed Penthesilea, queen of the Amazons, with one blow to her head from his trusty weapon.
The Romans continued the tradition started by the Greeks and incorporated axes into their military campaigns as well; however, they also utilized them for more peaceful pursuits such as agriculture and forestry. During the Middle Ages, axes became increasingly popular as weapons due to their effectiveness against armored knights. This led to the development of specialized types such as throwing axes and battleaxes. By the Renaissance, most European armies had adopted some form of axeman into their ranks – typically equipped with either a hand-axe or halberd.
Today, axes are still widely used in many parts of world for both practical applications such as forestry and carpentry, as well sporting events like competitive log chopping. They have also retained their place in popular culture thanks to appearances in film (e.g., Paul Bunyan), television (e.g., Game Of Thrones), video games (e.g., Skyrim), comic books (e.g., Thor) and literature (e.g., Lord Of The Rings).
The Plow. The word ‘plow’ (or a form of it as noun or verb) appears around 32 times throughout the Bible
Throughout the Bible, the plow is mentioned as a tool that was used for farming. In Genesis 4:2, it is said that Cain worked the land and built a city, which suggests that he used a plow to farm. In Exodus 34:21, God tells Moses to have the Israelites plow their land with oxen. In 1 Samuel 14:14, Saul ordered his army not to eat anything until they had defeated their enemies, which would have required them to plow their fields first. In 2 Kings 9:25-26, Jehu orders the execution of those who worshipped Baal, and they were probably killed with a plow because it was considered an instrument of agriculture. In Isaiah 28:24-29, Isaiah prophesies about how God will destroy Israel’s enemies with a sickle and threshing board (another tool used for farming), which again suggests that plows were commonly used during this time period.
The Plow was likely first invented in Mesopotamia or Egypt around 4000-5000 BC (according to some sources). It allowed farmers to work larger areas of land more efficiently and effectively than before. This tool gradually spread throughout the Middle East and Europe over the next few thousand years. By the time of the Roman Empire (1st century AD), it is thought that most farms in Europe were using some form of Plow.
The Plow continued to be an important tool for farmers throughout the Medieval period and into early modern times. However, by the 19 t h century there were many new inventions such as John Deere’s steel plow that greatly improved efficiency even further. Today, there are still many farms around the world that use Plows (or similar tools) as part of their agricultural process.”
The Hammer (interchangeable with Mallet) We found it no surprise to find the hammer all over the Bible
The hammer (mallet) is one of the most versatile tools used by humans. It can be used for a variety of tasks, from driving nails to shaping wood. The Bible mentions the hammer several times, often in reference to its use in construction or as a weapon.
In the book of Exodus, we read about how Moses used a staff or rod turned into a snake to frighten the Egyptian pharaoh. Afterward, God instructed Moses to strike the Nile River with his staff and turn the water into blood. In both instances, it was likely that Moses used some sort of hammer or mallet to carry out these miracles.
The prophet Isaiah speaks of God’s wrath being like “a refining fire” and “a hammer that breaks rock.” This image of God as a blacksmith pounding away at metal is repeated in other passages as well, such as Jeremiah 23 29 and Habakkuk 3:13. It’s clear that, in addition to its more peaceful uses, the hammer can also be wielded as a deadly weapon.
We see an example of this in Judges 4:21, when Jael bashes Sisera’s head with a tent peg driven by a mallet. The story of David and Goliath also features a giant being felled by a small stone hurled from a sling – another example of the surprising power of this simple tool.
In Psalm 74:6-7, we read about how God used His mighty power to break apart Leviathan – described here as “a crocodile-like creature” – with His “two-pronged spear.” Some scholars believe this may have been another reference to using a type of hammer or maul against an enemy.” And finally,”.
