The word עקש appears for the first time in Scripture in this week's Parashah. Rashi explains the word with two similar words: עקום (bent) and מעוקל (twisted), or in a word: crookedness. But in that there are no fewer than ten "synonyms" for this concept in the Holy language, we seek in this article to discern the uniqueness of this work compared to its peers. To this end, we compare this word to other words in Leshon Hakodesh containing the string קש, all of which broadly share the meanings harshness, hardness and/or solidity.
