A tall sedgy plant with a hollow stem, growing in moist places. In Isaiah 43:24 ; Jeremiah 6:20 , the Hebrew word Kaneh Is thus rendered, giving its name to the plant. It is rendered "reed" in 1 Kings 14:15 ; Job 40:21 ; Isaiah 19:6 ; 35:7 . In Psalm 68:30 the expression "company of spearmen" is in the margin and the Revised Version "beasts of the reeds," referring probably to the crocodile or the hippopotamus as a symbol of Egypt. In 2 Kings 18:21 ; Isaiah 36:6 ; Ezekiel 29:6,7 , the reference is to the weak, fragile nature of the reed. (See CALAMUS .)
