Crumb

CRUMB

krum (psichion, "a little bit"):

Occurs only in the New Testament, of remnants of food, scraps. Lazarus desired "to be fed with the crumbs that fell from the rich man's table" (Luke 16:21). "Even the (little) dogs eat of the crumbs" (Matthew 15:27; Mark 7:28), "possibly the fragments of bread on which the guests wiped their hands (after thrusting them into the common dish), and flung to the dogs" (Farrar, Life of Christ, I, 476).
