'Rods' in the Bible
White and violet linen hangings were fastened with fine white and purple linen cords to silver rods on marble columns. Gold and silver couches were arranged on a mosaic pavement of red feldspar, marble, mother-of-pearl, and precious stones.
His bones are bronze tubes;his limbs are like iron rods.
His arms are rods of goldset with topaz.His body is an ivory panelcovered with sapphires.
My people consult their wooden idols,and their divining rods inform them.For a spirit of promiscuity leads them astray;they act promiscuouslyin disobedience to their God.
Then the mob joined in the attack against them, and the chief magistrates stripped off their clothes and ordered them to be beaten with rods.
Three times I was beaten with rods by the Romans.Once I was stoned by my enemies.Three times I was shipwrecked.I have spent a night and a dayin the open sea.
