Genesis 37:25

Overview - Genesis 37
Joseph is loved by Jacob, but hated by his brethren.
His dreams and the interpretation.

21 At Reuben's desire they cast him into a pit;
25 and afterwards sell him to the Ishmaelites; while Ruben grieves at not finding him.
31 His coat, covered with blood, is sent to Jacob, who mourns him inordinately.
36 Joseph is brought to Egypt and sold to Potiphar.

Genesis 37:25  (King James Version)
And they sat down to eat bread: and they lifted up their eyes and looked, and, behold, a company of Ishmeelites came from Gilead with their camels bearing spicery and balm and myrrh, going to carry it down to Egypt.

{Nechoth,} is rendered by the LXX. "incense;" Syriac,
"resin;" Samaritan, "balsam;" Acquila, "storax;" which is followed by Bochart. This drug is abundant in Syria, and here Moses joins with it resin, honey, and myrrh; which agrees with the nature of the storax, which is the resin of a tree of the same name, of a reddish colour, and peculiarly pleasant fragrance.

{Tzeri,} which in Arabic, as a verb, is to flow, seems to be a common name, as balm or balsam with us, for many of those oily, resinous substances, which flow spontaneously, or by incision, from various trees or plants; accordingly the ancients have generally interpreted it resin.

{Lot,} is probably, as Junius, De Dieu, Celsius, and Ursinus contend, the same as the Arabic {ladan}, Greek [ladanon,] and Latin {ladanum}.
