DEW

The dews in Palestine and some other oriental countries are very copious, and serve very greatly to sustain and promote vegetation in seasons when little or no rain falls. Maundrell tells us that the tents of his company, when pitched on Tabor and Hermon, "were as wet with dew as if it had rained on them all night," Judges 6:38 Song of Solomon 5:2. Dew was especially heavy near the mountains, and just before and after the rainy season. It was prized as a precious boon of Providence, Genesis 27:28 Deuteronomy 33:28 1 Kings 17:1 Job 29:19 Haggai 1:10 Zechariah 8:12. The dew furnishes the sacred penmen with many beautiful allusions, Deuteronomy 32:2 2 Samuel 17:12 Psalms 110:3 Proverbs 19:12 Hosea 14:5 Micah 5:7.
