NETTLE. 1 . chârûl ( Job 30:7 , Proverbs 24:31 , Zephaniah 2:9 ), more probably a generic name for thorn bushes growing in the wilderness, such as the Zizyphus and varieties of acacia. 2. qimmôs ( Isaiah 34:13 , Hosea 9:6 ), qimměs ônîm ( Proverbs 24:31 EV [Note: English Version.] ‘ thorns ’). These words all refer probably to nettles, which are abundant in deserted places in Palestine.
