ash , σής. This is the clothes-moth (one of the Tineae ), the destructive ravages of which are well known. In the East garments were kept in larger quantities, as property and for presents, as when Naaman the Syrian brought 'changes of garments' as a present to Elisha, of which Gehazi obtained two. 2 Kings 5:22,23 . Moths do not attack the clothing that is worn; but they lay their eggs in what is laid up, in which the young find their food. From this the lesson is drawn to lay up treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust can corrupt or destroy. Job 13:28 . Psalm 39:11; Isaiah 51:8; Matthew 6:19,20; James 5:2 .
