Hay

Additional Links

The Hebrew has no word for it, chatsir (Proverbs 27:25; Isaiah 15:6) expressing grass as well as hay. For in the hot East the grass becomes hay as it stands; compare Matthew 6:30. It was cut as it was used, and not stacked (Psalms 37:2; Psalms 72:6; Psalms 129:7). Amos 7:1, "the latter growth," is that which springs up after mowing. Chashash (Isaiah 5:24) is not "chaff," but the withered grass. In Isaiah 15:6; Proverbs 27:2, translated "the hay grass."
