Bdellium

Bdellium [N] [E]

(bedolach ). ( Genesis 2:12 ; Numbers 11:7 ) It is quite impossible to say whether bedolach denotes a mineral or an animal production or a vegetable exudation. Bdellium is an odoriferous exudation from a tree which is perhaps the Borassus flabelliformis , Lin., of Arabia Felix.
