Hemlock @ (1.) Heb. rosh Hosea:10:4; rendered "gall" in Deuteronomy:29:18 Deuteronomy:32:32; Psalms:69:21; Jeremiah:9:15 Jeremiah:23:15; "poison," Job:20:16; "venom," Deuteronomy:32:33). "Rosh is the name of some poisonous plant which grows quickly and luxuriantly; of a bitter taste, and therefore coupled with wormwood Deuteronomy:29:18; Lamentations:3:19). Hence it would seem to be not the hemlock cicuta, nor the colocynth or wild gourd, nor lolium darnel, but the poppy so called from its heads" (Gesenius, Lex.). (2.) Heb. la'anah, generally rendered "wormwood" (q.v.), Deuteronomy:29:18, Text 17; Proverbs:5:4; Jeremiah:9:15 Jeremiah:23:15. Once it is rendered "hemlock" Amos:6:12; R.V., "wormwood"). This Hebrew word is from a root meaning "to curse," hence the accursed.
