Issue (Of Blood)


(zobh, zubh; rhusis, haimorrhoos):

When used as a description of a bodily affection the word signifies:

(1) A discharge, the consequence of uncleanness and sin (Leviticus 15:2; Numbers 5:2). As such it was one of the judgments which were to afflict the family of Joab (2 Samuel 3:29);

(2) a hemorrhage, either natural (Leviticus 12:7, where the word used is maqor, literally, a "fountain"), or the consequence of disease (Matthew 9:20; Mark 5:25; Luke 8:43).
