Weasel

Weasel [N] [S]

(Heb. holedh), enumerated among unclean animals ( Leviticus 11:29 ). Some think that this Hebrew word rather denotes the mole (Spalax typhlus) common in Palestine. There is no sufficient reason, however, to depart from the usual translation. The weasel tribe are common also in Palestine.
