SPELT

spelt (kuccemeth; olura, zea (Exodus 9:32, the King James Version "rye"; Isa 18:25, the King James Version "rye," margin "spelt"; Ezekiel 4:9, the King James Version "fitches" margin "spelt"; the Revised Version (British and American) adopts "spelt," influenced by the Septuagint, in all passages)):

Spelt is the seed of Triticum spelta, a kind of wild wheat. Several writers would identify this kuccemeth with the Arabic kirsenneh (Vicia ervilia), a kind of vetch much used as camels' fodder.
