BOX-TREE ( teashshûr , Isaiah 41:19; Isaiah 60:13 , Ezekiel 27:6 ). Whether the teashshûr was the box-tree ( Buxus longifolia ) or the sherbin , mod. Arab. [Note: Arabic.] for the cypress ( Cupressus sempervirens ), as RV [Note: Revised Version.] adopts, or, as others propose, a kind of juniper, is quite unsettled. So good an authority as Post rejects the first as improbable.

E. W. G. Masterman.
