Easton's Bible Dictionary

The sheath for arrows. The Hebrew word (aspah) thus commonly rendered is found in Job 39:23 ; Psalms 127:5 ; Isaiah 22:6 ; 49:2 ; Jeremiah 5:16 ; Lamentations 3:13 . In Genesis 27:3 this word is the rendering of the Hebrew teli, which is supposed rather to mean a suspended weapon, literally "that which hangs from one", i.e., is suspended from the shoulder or girdle.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia

kwiv'-er (ashpah, teli; pharetra (Sirach 26:12)):

(1) A case or sheath for carrying arrows, a part of the ordinary equipment of the warrior, both foot-soldier and charioteer (Job 39:23 ; Isaiah 22:6), and also of the huntsman (Genesis 27:3).

(2) Figuratively of a group in passages where children (Psalms 127:5) or prophets of Yahweh (Isaiah 49:2) are spoken of as arrows. Arrows are called bene 'ashpah, "sons of the quiver" (Lamentations 3:13).

(3) By identifying the arrows with the death they produce, the quiver is likened to an open grave (Jeremiah 5:16).
