Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
ANISE (RV [Note: Revised Version.] ‘ dill ,’ Matthew 23:23 ) is the familiar plant Anethum graveolens , one of the UmbelliferÃ¦. It is indigenous in Palestine, and is extensively used both in cooking and in the form of ‘dill water’ as a domestic remedy for flatulence. It is expressly stated in Jewish writers that the dill was subject to tithe.
