Fitches. This word occurs in Isaiah 28:25; Isaiah 28:27. It would seem to be the black cummin, Nigella sativa, used for both food and medicine. The seed is aromatic, and of a sharp taste. This plant was beaten out with a staff, because the heavy drag would have crushed the seeds. The "fitches" of Ezekiel 4:9 was spelt.
