Easton's Bible Dictionary

1. The translation of a word which is a generic name for horned cattle (Isaiah 65:25). It is also rendered "cow" (Ezekiel 4:15), "ox" (Genesis 12:16).

2. The translation of a word always meaning an animal of the ox kind, without distinction of age or sex (Hosea 12:11). It is rendered "cow" (Numbers 18:17) and "ox" (Leviticus 17:3).

3. Another word is rendered in the same way (Jeremiah 31:18). It is also translated "calf" (Leviticus 9:3; Micah 6:6). It is the same word used of the "molten calf" (Exodus 32:4, 8) and "the golden calf" (1 Kings 12:28).

4. In Judges 6:25; Isaiah 34:7, the Hebrew word is different. It is the customary word for bulls offered in sacrifice. In Hosea 14:2, the Authorized Version has "calves," the Revised Version "bullocks."
