Hip (שׁוֹק, shok, usually "shoulder") occurs in the A.V. only in the phrase "hip and thigh" (lit. leg upon thigh), in the account of Samson's slaughter of the Philistines (Jg 15:8); evidently a proverbial phrase, i.e. "he cut them in pieces so that their limbs, their legs and their thighs, were scattered one upon another, q. d. he totally destroyed them" (Gesenius). SEE SAMSON.
