  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Arrows 
  At  first  made  of  reeds,  and  then  of  wood  tipped  with  iron. 
  Arrows  are  sometimes  figuratively  put  for  lightning  (Deut. 
  32:23,  42;  Ps  7:13;  18:14;  144:6;  Zech.  9:14).  They  were  used 
  in  war  as  well  as  in  the  chase  (Gen.  27:3;  49:23).  They  were 
  also  used  in  divination  (Ezek.  21:21). 
 
  The  word  is  frequently  employed  as  a  symbol  of  calamity  or 
  disease  inflicted  by  God  (Job  6:4;  34:6;  Ps  38:2;  Deut.  32:23. 
  Comp.  Ezek.  5:16),  or  of  some  sudden  danger  (Ps.  91:5),  or 
  bitter  words  (Ps.  64:3),  or  false  testimony  (Prov.  25:18).
