Hen

Hen [N] [H] [S]

common in later times among the Jews in Palestine ( Matthew 23:37 ; Luke 13:34 ). It is noticeable that this familiar bird is only mentioned in these passages in connection with our Lord's lamentation over the impenitence of Jerusalem.

Hen. [N] [E] [H]

The hen is nowhere noticed in the Bible except in ( Matthew 23:37 ; Luke 13:34 ) That a bird so common in Palestine should receive such slight notice is certainly peculiar.

HEN (1)

hen (chen, "favor"). In Zechariah 6:14, English Versions of the Bible reads, "And the crowns shall be to Helem .... and to Hen the son of Zephaniah." But as this person is called Josiah in Zechariah 6:10, the Revised Version, margin "and for the kindness of the son of Zephaniah" is probably right, but the text is uncertain.

See JOSIAH.
