Stock, Stocks

STOCK, STOCKS. 1. In the KJV the bole of a tree was a stock and was worshiped by apostate Israel (Isa.44.19; Jer.2.27; Hos.4.12).

2. In the KJV a family (Lev.25.47; Isa.40.24; Phil.3.5). Children of the stock of Abraham were appealed to by Paul in Antioch (Acts.13.26). Paul was proud of being of the Hebrew stock (Phil.3.5).

3. An instrument of punishment. There were various kinds. One was a mechanism by which the body was twisted into an unnatural position and thus made to endure excruciating agony (Jer.20.2-Jer.20.3). Madmen, posing as prophets, were put on the rack (Jer.29.26). Paul and Silas were put in stocks to make sure they did not escape from prison in Philippi (Acts.16.24).
