LILY

In biblical usage, any of a number of distinctive flowers ranging from the lotus of the Nile (1 Kings 7:19) to wild field flowers in Palestine (Matthew 6:28). The lily was the inspiration for the rim of the molten sea in the Temple in Jerusalem (1 Kings 7:26; compare 1 Kings 7:19,1 Kings 7:22). The Song of Solomon uses it to beautify the writer's description of love (1 Kings 2:1; 1 Kings 4:5). See Flowers in the Bible.
