MOUSE

In the Scriptures, is used chiefly of the field mouse, but probably includes various species of these animals, some of which were eaten. Moses, Leviticus 11:29, declared it to be unclean, yet it was sometimes eaten; and Isaiah 66:17, reproaches the Jews with this practice. The hamster and the dormouse, as well as the jerboa, are sometimes used for food by the modern Arabs. Mice made great havoc in the fields of the Philistines, after that people had taken the ark of the Lord; which induced them to send it back with mice and emerods of gold, 1 Samuel 5:6,9,11 6:4-5. The field mice are equally prevalent in those regions at the present day. See HAMATH.
