Arrowsnake

ARROW-SNAKE. See Adder (KJVmg. Gen 49:17).

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

ar’-o-snak: In Isa 34:15 the Hebrew word kippoz, which in the King James Version is rendered "great owl," is in the English Revised Version rendered "arrowsnake," and in the American Standard Revised Version "dart-snake." Gesenius, who translates "arrowsnake," says "so called from the spring with which it propels itself." Others, from the mention of "make her nest, lay, and hatch," think some kind of bird is meant. See Owl; Serpent.
