Meat Meats

Additional Links

Meat, Meats. This word as it occurs in our version is frequently used for food in general, Leviticus 22:11; Leviticus 22:13, R. V., "bread;" 1 Samuel 20:5; 1 Samuel 20:34; 2 Samuel 3:35, R. V., "bread," and elsewhere, or for what is allowed to be eaten, proper for sustenance, Genesis 1:29-30; Genesis 9:3, where the R. V. reads "food." More specially, though perhaps sometimes indicating, as in our ordinary employment of the term, flesh-meat, Genesis 27:4; Genesis 27:7; Genesis 27:33, it is almost exclusively applied to vegetables or vegetable products. Thus a meat-offering, R. V. "meal-offering," was a kind of cake made of flour and oil. Leviticus 2:1-16.
