Easton's Bible Dictionary

Fatling

  • A fatted animal for slaughter (2 Samuel 6:13; Isaiah 11:6; Ezekiel 39:18. Compare Matthew 22:4, where the word used in the original, sitistos, means literally "corn-fed;" i.e., installed, fat).
  • Psalms 66:15 (Heb. meah, meaning "marrowy," "fat," a species of sheep).
  • 1 Samuel 15:9 (Heb. mishneh, meaning "the second," and hence probably "cattle of a second quality," or lambs of the second birth, i.e., autmnal lambs, and therfore of less value).
