BARLEY

A grain for which Palestine was known (Deuteronomy 8:8). The failure of the barley crop was a disaster (Joel 1:11). Barley was the food of the poor (Leviticus 23:22; Ruth 3:15,Ruth 3:17; 2 Samuel 17:28; 2 Kings 4:42; 2 Kings 7:1,2 Kings 7:6,2 Kings 7:18; 2 Chronicles 2:10,2 Chronicles 2:15; 2 Chronicles 27:5; Jeremiah 41:8). Barley flour was used to make bread (Judges 7:13; Ezekiel 4:12) and was the kind of bread Jesus used to feed the multitude (John 6:9,John 6:13). Barley was also used as feed for horses, mules, and donkeys (1 Kings 4:28). There was a spring variety (Hordeum vulgare) and a winter variety (Hordeum hexastichon).
