Question
Please explain how this word (Strongs g2247) that Strongs defines as singular "nail" becomes plural "nails".  Also the word g5495 and how that goes from the singular to plural.

Thank you!

Answer
Daniel,

The singular for nail is haylos as used by Strong and other concordances; whereas  the word used in the Bible is the plural of that word :haylown.

Perhaps I'm missing the point about what you are asking.  Please rephrase the question with more detail and and I'll try to give you a more detailed answer.
