Foam

Foam

( Hosea 10:7 ), the rendering of ketseph , which properly means twigs or splinters (as rendered in the LXX. and marg. RSV). The expression in Hosea may therefore be read, "as a chip on the face of the water," denoting the helplessness of the piece of wood as compared with the irresistable current.
