הטה , Genesis 30:14; Deuteronomy 8:8; σιτος , Matthew 13:25; Luke 16:7; 1 Corinthians 15:37; the principal and the most valuable kind of grain for the service of man. ( See BARLEY, and See FITCHES. ) In Leviticus 2, directions are given for oblations, which in our translation are called meat-offerings; but as meat means flesh, and all kinds of offerings there specified, were made of wheat, it had been better to render it "wheaten offerings." Calmet has observed, that there were five kinds of these, simple flour, oven cakes, cakes of the fire plate, cakes of the frying pan, and green ears of corn. The word בר , translated corn, Genesis 41:35 , and wheat in Jeremiah 23:28; Joel 2:24; Amos 5:11 , &c, is undoubtedly the burr, or wild corn of the Arabs, mentioned by Forskal.
