1. Heb. hatsir, ripe grass fit for mowing (1 Kings 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).
