  Asp 
  (Heb.  pethen),  Deut.  32:33;  Job  20:14,  16;  Isa.  11:8.  It  was 
  probably  the  Egyptian  cobra  (Naja  haje),  which  was  very 
  poisonous  (Rom.  3:13;  Gr  aspis).  The  Egyptians  worshipped  it  as 
  the  _uraeus_,  and  it  was  found  in  the  desert  and  in  the  fields. 
  The  peace  and  security  of  Messiah's  reign  is  represented  by  the 
  figure  of  a  child  playing  on  the  hole  of  the  asp.  (See  {ADDER}.)
