Bush. The Hebrew word, seneh, occurs only in those passages which refer to Jehovah's appearance to Moses, "in the flame of fire in the bush." Exodus 3:2-4; Exodus 33:16. It is quite impossible to say what kind of thorn bush is intended; but it was probably the acacia, a small variety of the shittim tree, found in the Sinai region.
