Brier

This word occurs frequently, and is the translation of several different terms.

  • Micah 7:4, it denotes a species of thorn shrub used for hedges. In Proverbs 15:19 the word is rendered "thorn" (Heb. Hedek , "stinging"), supposed by some to be what is called the "apple of Sodom" (q.v.).

  • Ezekiel 28:24, Sallon' , properly a "prickle," such as is found on the shoots of the palm tree.

  • Isaiah 55:13, probably simply a thorny bush. Some, following the Vulgate Version, regard it as the "nettle."

  • Isaiah 5:6; 7:23-25, etc., frequently used to denote thorny shrubs in general. In 10:17; 27:4, it means troublesome men.

  • In Hebrews 6:8 the Greek word (tribolos) so rendered means "three-pronged," and denotes the land caltrop, a low throny shrub resembling in its spikes the military "crow-foot." Compare Matthew 7:16, "thistle."
