PICK (חָרִיץ, H3043). KJV HARROW. A sharp iron instrument of some kind. In the RSV rendering of 2 Samuel 12:31 and 1 Chronicles 20:3, David set the defeated Ammonites to labor with saws and iron picks and iron axes, and made them toil at the brickkilns. The KJV rendering has him torture the Ammonites “under harrows of iron.” There is no doubt that the RSV is correct here.
