Hebrew - tamarisk tree
TAMARISK

(ta' muh rihssk)A shrublike tree (Tamarix syriaca) common to the Sinai and southern Palestine with small white or pink flowers. Many varieties of the tree exist. Abraham planted a tamarisk at Beer-sheba (Genesis 21:33), and Saul was buried beneath one at Jabesh-gilead (1 Samuel 31:13). Saul convened his court under one (1 Samuel 22:6). KJV translated, “grave” and “tree.” Some believe the resin which the tamarisk produces may have been the manna eaten by the Hebrews during the wilderness wanderings.
