CRIMSON

A red color taken from the bodies of dead kermes (Coccus ilicis, which attached itself to the kermes oak—Quercus coccifera) or cochineal insects (Coccus cacti). The same Hebrew words translated as crimson are also translated “scarlet” (“red” comes from a root word from which the Hebrew word “blood” comes and designates a different color.) Crimson or scarlet thread (Genesis 38:28,Genesis 38:30), cord (Joshua 2:18,Joshua 2:21), and cloth (Leviticus 14:4; Numbers 4:8; 2 Samuel 1:24; 2 Chronicles 2:7,2 Chronicles 2:14; 2 Chronicles 3:14; Proverbs 31:21; Jeremiah 4:30; Nahum 2:3) are mentioned in the Bible. Crimson or scarlet along with purple were considered royal colors (Matthew 27:28; Revelation 17:3-4; Revelation 18:11-12,Revelation 18:16). Isaiah used scarlet as the imagery to describe sins (Isaiah 1:18). See Colors.
