WILLOW

A very common tree, which grows in marshy places, Job 40:22 Isaiah 44:4, with a leaf much like that of the olive. God commanded the Hebrews to take branches of the handsomest trees, particularly of the willows of the brook, and to bear them in their hands before the Lord, as a token of rejoicing, at the feast of Tabernacles, Leviticus 23:40.

The "weeping willow," memorable in connection with the mourning Hebrew captives, Psalms 137:2, is a native of Babylonica. The "book of the willows," Isaiah 15:7, on the southern border of Moab, flows into the southeast extremity of the Dead Sea.
