Meadow

Meadow -

(1.) Hebrew: ha'ahu (Gen. 41:2, 18), probably an Egyptain word transferred to the Hebrew; some kind of reed or water-plant. In the Revised Version it is rendered "reed-grass", i.e., the sedge or rank grass by the river side.

(2.) Hebrew: ma'areh (Judg. 20:33), pl., "meadows of Gibeah" (R.V., after the Septuagint, "Maareh-geba"). Some have adopted the rendering "after Gibeah had been left open." The Vulgate translates the word "from the west."
