The young of cattle whether male or female. A calf was offered for a sin-offering for Aaron, and a calf and a lamb for a burnt-offering for the people, at the commencement of Aaron's service. Leviticus 9:2,8 .

A calf was kept by the affluent, ready for any special meal, such as was presented tender and good to the angels by Abraham, Genesis 18:7 ; which is also described as 'the fatted calf' in the parable of the Prodigal Son. Luke 15:23 . The calf or ox is used typically to represent one of the attributes of God in governmental power, namely, firm endurance. Revelation 4:7 : cf. Ezekiel 1:10 .
