DEW

Dew is the moisture which forms into drops of water upon the earth during a cool night. Moist air drawing from the sea is largely responsible for the dewfall in western Palestine. Downward dew occurs in the summer when the soil is loose, thus providing good cooling conditions. Upward dew results from the condensation of water vapor from damp soil and is, therefore, more frequent in the winter season.

Dew is used in the Bible as a symbol of refreshment (Deuteronomy 32:2; Psalms 133:3); a symbol of the loving power of God which revives and invigorates (Proverbs 19:12); a symbol of the sudden onset of an enemy (2 Samuel 17:12); a symbol of brotherly love and harmony (Psalms 133:3); a symbol of God's revelation (Judges 6:36-40); and a symbol of God's blessing (Genesis 27:28).
