Therefore the Bible often uses the rod to symbolize the authority one has or the authority vested in him by another.
The crook (heka) and flail (nekhakha) are symbols used in Ancient Egyptian society. They were originally the attributes of the deity Osiris that became insignia of pharaonic authority. The shepherd's crook stood for kingship and the flail for the fertility of the land.
