Flake

Additional Links

is the rendering in the A. V. at Job 41:15 (" the flakes of his [i.e. leviathan's] flesh are joined together, דָּבֵקוּ, have clung, i.e. are rigid), for מִפָּל, mappal', something pendulous (elsewhere only Amos 8:6, for refuse of grain, as that which falls away in winnowing, i.e. chaff), referring to the dewlaps or flabby parts on the belly of the crocodile (q.v.), which are firmly attached to the body, instead of loosely hanging as in the ox.
