Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
HEIFER . The heifer was used in agriculture ( Judges 14:18 , Jeremiah 50:11 , Hosea 10:11 ), and in religious ritual ( Genesis 15:9 , 1 Samuel 16:2 , Numbers 19:2 f. etc.). Israel is compared to a heifer in Hosea 4:16 , and so is Egypt in Jeremiah 46:20 , and ChaldÃ¦a in Jeremiah 50:11 . See also Ox, Red Heifer.
