Quote:
Strange Scriptures That Perplex the Western Mind
By Barbara M. Bowen

This scripture refers to the Bible Land’s hammock or cradle, … It is a hammock … carried on the mother’s shoulders, with cords passing across her forehead. … How often we have seen a small hammock on the shoulders of a young mother, with a tiny face peeking out, or more often with a sleeping baby and a little foot or a small hand showing at the side of the hammock. When the mother carries the child, she will draw a part of her large white veil over the hammock as a protection against the hot sun, either partly or completely covering it. This is the common picture referred to in Deut. 33:12.
