Knots

“And a threefold cord is not quickly broken,” —Ecclesiastes 4:12.

Rope is one of man’s earliest tools.  Various kinds of ropes and knotting techniques are used every day by all of us.  Shoelaces, clotheslines, backyard swings, and bridges are just a few of the many uses of ropes.

A young man needs to learn how to select the proper rope for each different job that he wants the rope to do.  A rope needs to be strong enough for the job, and the correct knot must be used to secure the rope.  There are over 3,000 ways of tying a rope.  Knots are needed to haul, hoist, tow, and support things.  The word knot also stands for one nautical mile (6,077 feet) as ropes were also once used to measure distances.
