Ezekiel 4:9  (King James Version)
Take thou also unto thee wheat, and barley, and beans, and lentiles, and millet, and fitches, and put them in one vessel, and make thee bread thereof, according to the number of the days that thou shalt lie upon thy side, three hundred and ninety days shalt thou eat thereof.
 


wheat
Ezekiel 4:13 Ezekiel 4:16

millet
{Dochan,} in Arabic, {dokhn,} the {holcus dochna} of Forskal, is a kind of millet, of considerable use as a food; the cultivation of which is described by Browne.

fitches
or, spelt.
{Kussemim} is doubtless [zea,] or spelt, as Aquila and Symmachus render here; and so LXX
and Theodotion, [olyra.] In times of scarcity it is customary to mix several kinds of coarser grains with the finer, to make it last the longer.
