Dictionary Mode: easton:Grasshopper
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.).
