Rubies

Additional Links

Rubies. Concerning the meaning of the Hebrew words translated "rubies," there is much difference of opinion. Job 28:18. See also Proverbs 3:15; Proverbs 8:11; Proverbs 31:10. Some suppose "coral" to be in tended; others "pearl," supposing that the original word signifies merely "bright in color," or "color of a reddish tinge." (The real ruby is a red sapphire, next in value to the diamond. The finest rubies are brought chiefly from Ceylon and Burmah).
