Snow


Common in Palestine in winter (Ps. 147:16). The snow on the tops of the Lebanon range is almost always within view throughout the whole year. The word is frequently used figuratively by the sacred writers (Job 24:19; Ps. 51:7; 68:14; Isa. 1:18). It is mentioned only once in the historical books (2 Sam. 23:20). It "was "carried to Tyre, Sidon, and Damascus as a luxury, and" labourers sweltering in the hot harvest-fields used it for the purpose of cooling the water which they drank (Prov. 25:13; Jer. "18:14). No doubt Herod Antipas, at his feasts in Tiberias," enjoyed also from this very source the modern luxury of "ice-water."
