Joint besides its usual meaning (דֶּבֶק de'bek, ἁφή, etc.), is, in one passage (Song 7:1), very erroneously employed in the A.V. as a rendering of חִמּוּקים, chammukim' (Sept. vaguely ῥνθμοί, Vulg. juncturoe, occurs nowhere else), the wrappers (of the thighs), i.e. drawers, a part of the female dress; which, in the case of bridal toilette, are represented as being fringed with a worked edging like lace or a skillfully chased jewel. SEE ATTIRE.
