Heb. ha'ahu ( Genesis 41:2Genesis 41:18 ), probably an Egyptain word transferred to the Hebrew; some kind of reed or water-plant. In the Revised Version it is rendered "reed-grass", i.e., the sedge or rank grass by the river side.
Heb. ma'areh ( Judges 20:33 ), pl., "meadows of Gibeah" (RSV, after the LXX., "Maareh-geba"). Some have adopted the rendering "after Gibeah had been left open." The Vulgate translates the word "from the west."
