Dictionary Mode: all:GRASS
Grass @ (1.) Heb. hatsir, ripe grass fit for mowing (kjvKings:18:5; Job:40:15; Psalms:104:14). As the herbage rapidly fades under the scorching sun, it is used as an image of the brevity of human life Isaiah:40:6-7; Psalms:90:5). In Numbers:11:5 this word is rendered "leeks." (2.) Heb. deshe', green grass Genesis:1:11-12; Isaiah:66:14; Deuteronomy:32:2). "The sickly and forced blades of grass which spring up on the flat plastered roofs of houses in the East are used as an emblem of speedy destruction, because they are small and weak, and because, under the scorching rays of the sun, they soon wither away" ( 2Kings:19:26; Psalms:129:6; Isaiah:37:27). The dry stalks of grass were often used as fuel for the oven Matthew:6:30 Matthew:13:30; Luke:12:28).
Grasshopper @ belongs to the class of neuropterous insects called Gryllidae. This insect is not unknown in Palestine. In Judges:6:5 Judges:7:12; Job:39:30; Jeremiah:46:23, where the Authorized Version has "grasshopper," the Revised Version more correctly renders the Hebrew word ('arbeh) by "locust." This is the case also in Amos:7:1; Nahum:3:17, where the Hebrew word _gob_ is used; and in Leviticus:11:22; Numbers:13:33; Ecclesiastes:12:5; Isaiah:40:22, where _hagab_ is used. In all these instances the proper rendering is probably "locust" (q.v.).
