Crisping Pins

CRISPING PINS, The KJV tr. of X:ARIY+I75YM00 in Isaiah 3:22. ASV has satchels and RSV handbags. Other trs. have also been suggested. Crisping pins are pins for crisping, or curling, the hair.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

kris’-ping: Pins for crisping, or curling, the hair. Thus the King James Version renders Hebrew chariTim (Isa 3:22; compare Vulgate). the Revised Version (British and American) substitutes more correctly "satchels" (so Qimchi (compare 2Ki 5:23); compare Arabic). Others think of girdles; still others of veils or head-bands.
