The wind coming from the east (Job 27:21; Isaiah 27:8 , etc.). Blight caused by this wind, "thin ears" (Genesis 41:6 ); the withered "gourd" (Jonah 4 :: 8 ). It was the cause and also the emblem of evil (Ezekiel 17:10; 19:12; Hosea 13:15 ). In Palestine this wind blows from a burning desert, and hence is destitute of moisture necessary for vegetation.
