Cow; Kine

COW; KINE

kou, kin (baqar (compare Arabic baqar, "cow"); `eghlath baqar (Isaiah 7:21); parah (compare Arabic furar, "young of a sheep, goat, or cow"); paroth `aloth (1 Samuel 6:7,10), "milch kine," from `ul , "to suckle"; 'eleph):

In Amos 4:1, the term, "kine of Bashan," is applied to the voluptuous women of Samaria. In Genesis 41:1-36 is the narration of Pharaoh's dream of the seven fat and seven lean kine. In Isaiah's vision (Isaiah 11:7) we have: "And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together." Cows do not seem to have been sacrificed. The sacrifice of the kine that brought the ark back from the Philistines (1 Samuel 6:14) was due to the exceptional circumstances.
