Is often alluded to in Scripture, for its whiteness, Exodus 4:6 ; Numbers 12:10 ; 2 Kings 5:27 ; Psalm 51:7 ; Isaiah 1:18 , and for its cleansing qualities, Job 9:30 . The expression in Proverbs 25:13 , "as the cold of snow in the time of harvest," alludes to its use in preparing cool drinks for the reapers; while on the other hand, in Proverbs 26:1 , "snow in summer," that is, a fall of snow, being unseasonable and unnatural, is compared to honors inappropriately lavished on a fool. Snow from Anti-Lebanon is still sold at Damascus and Beyroot in the simmer, and even conveyed to Egypt. It rarely fell of any great depth in the latitude of Palestine, or remained long on the ground except in elevated spots, 2 Samuel 23:20 . Like every other wonder of nature, it is ascribed to the hand of God, Psalm 147:16,17 .
