Ear

Resource Toolbox

Used frequently in a figurative sense (Psalm 34:15 ). To "uncover the ear" is to show respect to a person (1 Samuel 20:2 marg.). To have the "ear heavy", or to have "uncircumcised ears" ( Isaiah 6:10 ), is to be inattentive and disobedient. To have the ear "bored" through with an awl was a sign of perpetual servitude (Exodus 21:6 ).
