Dictionary Mode: all:MILK
@ (1.) Hebrew halabh, "new milk", milk in its fresh state Judges:4:19). It is frequently mentioned in connection with honey Exodus:3:8 Exodus:13:5; Joshua:5:6; Isaiah:7:15 Isaiah:7:22 Jeremiah:11:5). Sheep Deuteronomy:32:14) and goats Proverbs:27:27) and camels Genesis:32:15), as well as cows, are made to give their milk for the use of man. Milk is used figuratively as a sign of abundance Genesis:49:12; Ezekiel:25:4; Joel:3:18). It is also a symbol of the rudiments of doctrine ( 1Corinthians:3:2; Hebrews:5:12-13), and of the unadulterated word of God ( 1Peter:2:2). (2.) Heb. hem'ah, always rendered "butter" in the Authorized Version. It means "butter," but also more frequently "cream," or perhaps, as some think, "curdled milk," such as that which Abraham set before the angels Genesis:18:8), and which Jael gave to Sisera Judges:5:25). In this state milk was used by travellers ( 2Samuel:17:29). If kept long enough, it acquired a slightly intoxicating or soporific power. This Hebrew word is also sometimes used for milk in general Deuteronomy:32:14; Job:20:17).

strongs: hitchcock: smith: MILK @ - As an article of diet, milk holds a more important position in eastern countries than with us. It is not a mere adjunct in cookery, or restricted to the use of the young, although it is naturally the characteristic food of childhood, both from its simple and nutritive qualities. ( 1Peter:2:2) and particularly as contrasted with meat, ( 1Corinthians:3:2; Hebrews:5:12) but beyond this it is regarded as substantial food adapted alike to all ages and classes. Not only the milk of cows, but of sheep, ( 32:14) of camels, Genesis:32:15) and of goats, Proverbs:27:27) was used; that latter appears to have been most highly prized.
