Woman’s hair and lion’s teeth (Rev 9:8)

“The locust’s hair

Was like

Woman’s hair.

Their teeth

Were like

Lion’s teeth.”

καὶ εἶχαν τρίχας ὡς τρίχας γυναικῶν, καὶ οἱ ὀδόντες αὐτῶν ὡς λεόντων ἦσαν,

John said, “The locust’s hair was (καὶ εἶχαν τρίχας) like woman’s hair (ὡς τρίχας γυναικῶν).  Their teeth (καὶ οἱ ὀδόντες αὐτῶν) were like lion’s teeth (ὡς λεόντων ἦσαν).”  John continued with his description of the hair and the teeth of these stinging locusts.  The locusts had hair like women’s hair, whatever that means.  They had teeth like a lion.  However, they had a lot smaller mouth than a lion.  Have you ever looked at a lion’s tooth?
