Ram (2)

RAM (2)


(1) The ordinary word is 'ayil, which is remarkably near to 'ayyal, "deer" (compare Latin caper, capra, "goat," and capreolus, "wild goat" or "roe-buck"; also Greek dorkas, "roe-buck" or "gazelle").

(2) dekhar, literally, "male" (Ezra 6:9,17; 7:17).

(3) kar, "battering ram" (Ezekiel 4:2; 21:22); elsewhere "lamb" (Deuteronomy 32:14, etc.).

(4) `attudh, properly "he-goat" ("ram," Genesis 31:10,12 the King James Version).
