Fir

Additional Links

Βerosh (from barash , "to cut up into planks") and beroth; including the Scotch fir, Ρi inus silvestris; the lurch, the cypress: all found in Lebanon, according to the Imperial Dictionary. Used for musical instruments, for its softness of grain and sonorous property (2 Samuel 6:5), doors (1 Kings 6:34), ceilings (2 Chronicles 3:5), decks of ships (Ezekiel 27:5). But Smith's Bible Dictionary Appendix (from Septuagint arkeuthos) and kedros) ) identifies berowsh with the tall fragrant juniper of Lebanon, and denies that the lurch and Scotch fir exist in Syria or Palestine.
