The biblical word includes the best as well as the earliest fruits or crops, both natural and prepared, drawn from such sources as the threshing-floor, the wine-vat, and the oil-press (Deuteronomy 18). They are mentioned in the Law as offerings to Jehovah (Deuteronomy 26), under the titles of gifts, tithes, sacrifices, etc., and on prescribed occasions, especially the feasts of the Passover, Pentecost, and Tabernacles.
