Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

צִרְעָה f. Exodus 23:28; Deuteronomy 7:20; Joshua 24:12 according to the ancient versions and the Hebrews, the hornet, with the art. collect. hornets, wasps, perhaps from the idea of piercing, which does not differ much from that of striking (صَرِيعُ a scourge), compare נָכָה, ضرب. But the hornets by which the Canaanites, locc. citt. are said to be driven from their dwellings, seems hardly capable of being literally understood (as is done by Bochart, in Hieroz. tom. iii. p. 407, ed. Lips.; Rosenm. Bibl. Alterthumsk. iv. 2, p. 430), but (with Le Clerc and Rosenm. on Ex. loc. cit.) metaph. as designating ills and calamities of various kinds; compare Joshua 24:12 and Joshua chap. 10.
