Additional Links
A nonpoisonous but bitter plant common to the Middle East. Wormwood often is used in analogy to speak of bitterness and sorrow. The Old Testament prophets pictured wormwood as the opposite of justice and righteousness (Amos 5:7 ; Jeremiah 23:15 ). Revelation describes as wormwood one of the blazing stars which brings destruction (Jeremiah 8:10-11 ).
