Reference: Flesh-Hook


a many-pronged fork used in the sacrificial services (1Sa 2:13-14; Ex 27:3; 38:3) by the priest in drawing away the flesh. The fat of the sacrifice, together with the breast and shoulder (Le 7:29-34), were presented by the worshipper to the priest. The fat was burned on the alter (Le 3:3-5), and the breast and shoulder became the portion of the priests. But Hophni and Phinehas, not content with this, sent a servant to seize with a flesh-hook a further portion.

The flesh-hook used by the priest's servant at Shiloh was a three-pronged fork (1Sa 2:13), as were probably those of bronze and gold mentioned in connexion with the Tabernacle (Ex 27:3; 38:3) and Temple (1Ch 28:17; 2Ch 4:16) respectively.
