Fork (שׁלשׁ קַלּשׁון, shelosh' killeshon', a triad of prongs), a three-pronged fork, i.e., pitch-fork with which hay, straw, and the like are gathered (occurs only 1Sa 13:21). The Targum (on Ec 12:11) uses the same word to express a pointed instrument. SEE AGRICULTURE.
The Orientals do not use forks at meals as we do but convey the food to their mouth with the fingers. SEE EATING.
