The Hebrew word ekes signifies 'fetter' or 'ankle band.' It is translated 'tinkling ornaments' for the feet in Isaiah 3:18 , as part of the dress of the haughty daughters of Zion, who liked to make a tinkling noise when they walked; but God would bring to nought all such adornings. The same Hebrew word is translated 'stocks,' in Proverbs 7:22 .
