the caterpillar
{Chosal,} from {chasal,} to consume, eat up, is rendered
[\~broucov\~, brouchos] by the LXX., in 2 ; Ch 6:28 and Aquila here, and also the Vulgate in Chron. and Isaiah 33:4 ; and Jerome here, {bruchus,} the chaffer, which every one knows to be a great devourer of the leaves of trees. The Syriac in Joel 1:4 2:25 renders it {tzartzooro,} which Michaelis, from the
Arabic {tzartzar,} a cricket, interprets the mole-cricket, which in its grub state is also very destructive to corn, grass, and other vegetables, by cankering the roots on which it feeds.
