Bush

Bush [S]

in which Jehovah appeared to Moses in the wilderness ( Exodus 3:2 ; Acts 7:30 ). It is difficult to say what particular kind of plant or bush is here meant. Probably it was the mimosa or acacia. The words "in the bush" in Mark 12:26 ; Luke 20:37 , mean "in the passage or paragraph on the bush;" i.e., in Exodus 3 .
