stub'-'-l (qash (Exodus 5:12, etc.); kalame (The Wisdom of Solomon 3:7; 1 Corinthians 3:12)):
These Hebrew and Greek forms are used of the stalks of wheat, etc., left knee-high in the field by the reapers. tebhen (Job 21:18), is a mixture of chopped straw and chaff produced in threshing, which is winnowed out by the fan (compare Jeremiah 23:28; Isaiah 5:24; Matthew 3:12). When tebhen was withheld from them the Israelites had to utilize qash for the manufacture of their bricks (Exodus 5:12).
