(Heb. gez), rendered in Psalms 72:6 "mown grass." The expression "king's mowings" ( Amos 7:1 ) refers to some royal right of early pasturage, the first crop of grass for the cavalry (Compare 1 Kings 18:5 ).
As the great heat of the climate in Palestine and other similarly situated countries soon dries up the herbage itself, hay-making in our sense of the term is not in use. The "kings mowings," ( Amos 7:1 ) may perhaps refer to some royal right of early pasturage for the use of the cavalry.
