Ge 30:35,39,40; 31:8 (twice),10,12 for `aqodh. In the context of Ge 30:35, etc., `aqodh certainly denotes defective coloring of some sort, but the exact meaning of the word is uncertain. The translation "ringstreaked" ("marked with circular bands") comes from connecting the word with the Hebrew root `-q-d, "to bind" (Ge 22:9), but this connection is dubious.
