White of an Egg
WHITE OF AN EGG (EV [Note: English Version.] Job 6:6 , RVm [Note: Revised Version margin.] ‘juice of purslain’). The allusion should perhaps be understood to be the juice of some insipid plant, probably Portulaca oleracea , L., the common purslane. ‘White of an egg’ (lit., on this view, ‘slime of the yoke’) is still, however, accepted by many interpreters.
