- In ( Genesis 41:2 Genesis 41:18 ) meadow appears to be an Egyptian term meaning some kind of flag or waterplant, as its use in ( Job 8:11 ) (Authorized Version "flag") seems to show.
- In ( Judges 20:33 ) the sense of the Hebrew word translated meadow is doubly uncertain. The most plausible interpretation is that of the Peshito-Syriac, which by a slight difference in the vowel-points makes the word mearah , "the cave."
