Dictionary Mode: easton:Goat
Goat @ (1.) Heb. 'ez, the she-goat Genesis:15:9 Genesis:30:35 Genesis:31:38 ). This Hebrew word is also used for the he-goat Exodus:12:5; Leviticus:4:23; Numbers:28:15), and to denote a kid Genesis:38:17 Genesis:38:20). Hence it may be regarded as the generic name of the animal as domesticated. It literally means "strength," and points to the superior strength of the goat as compared with the sheep. (2.) Heb. 'attud, only in plural; rendered "rams" Genesis:31:10-12); he-goats Numbers:7:17-88; Isaiah:1:11); goats Deuteronomy:32:14; Psalms:50:13). They were used in sacrifice Psalms:66:15). This word is used metaphorically for princes or chiefs in Isaiah:14:9, and in Zechariah:10:3 as leaders. (Comp. Jeremiah:50:8.) (3.) Heb. gedi, properly a kid. Its flesh was a delicacy among the Hebrews Genesis:27:9 Genesis:27:14, 17; Judges:6:19). (4.) Heb. sa'ir, meaning the "shaggy," a hairy goat, a he-goat ( 2Chronicals:29:23); "a goat" Leviticus:4:24); "satyr" Isaiah:13:21); "devils" Leviticus:17:7). It is the goat of the sin-offering Leviticus:9:3 Leviticus:9:15 Leviticus:10:16). (5.) Heb. tsaphir, a he-goat of the goats ( 2Chronicals:29:21). In Daniel:8:5 Daniel:8:8 it is used as a symbol of the Macedonian empire. (6.) Heb. tayish, a "striker" or "butter," rendered "he-goat" Genesis:30:35 Genesis:32:14). (7.) Heb. 'azazel (q.v.), the "scapegoat" Leviticus:16:8-10 Leviticus:16:26). (8.) There are two Hebrew words used to denote the undomesticated goat:, _Yael_, only in plural mountain goats ( 1Samuel:24:2; Job:39:1; Psalms:104:18). It is derived from a word meaning "to climb." It is the ibex, which abounded in the mountainous parts of Moab. And _'akko_, only in Deuteronomy:14:5, the wild goat. Goats are mentioned in the New Testament in Matthew:25:32-33; Hebrews:9:12-13, 19; 10:4. They represent oppressors and wicked men Ezekiel:34:17 Ezekiel:39:18; Matthew:25:33). Several varieties of the goat were familiar to the Hebrews. They had an important place in their rural economy on account of the milk they afforded and the excellency of the flesh of the kid. They formed an important part of pastoral wealth Genesis:31:10-12 Genesis:32:14; 1Samuel:25:2).
