an´k 'l (in older editions of the King James Version, ancle ): From Hebrew מי אפסים , mē'āpheṣayim literally, "water of ankles," i.e. shallow water (Ezekiel 47:3 ); "anklebones" (Acts 3:7 ) from σφυδρόν , sphudrón "ankle chains" (the King James Version "chains"), from a Hebrew root meaning "to walk about proudly" (Numbers 31:50 ). The same Hebrew word is translated "bracelet" (2 Samuel 1:10 ), but in Isaiah 3:20 another word from the same root "ankle chains" (the King James Version "ornaments of the legs"). Compare ANKLET (Isaiah 3:18 ).
