(Strong's #5521 — Noun Feminine — chole — khol-ay' )

a word probably connected with chloe, "yellow," denotes "gall," (a) literal, Matthew 27:34 (cp. Psalm 69:21 ); some regard the word here as referring to myrrh, on account of Mark 15:23 ; (b) metaphorical, Acts 8:23 , where "gall of bitterness" stands for extreme wickedness, productive of evil fruit. In the OT it is used (a) of a plant characterized by bitterness (probably wormwood), Deuteronomy 29:18 ; Hosea 10:4 ; Amos 6:12 ; (b) as the translation of the word mererah, "bitterness," Job 13:26 , e.g.; (c) as the translation of rosh, "venom;" in Deuteronomy 32:32 "(grapes) of gall." In Job 20:25 , the gall bladder is referred to (the receptacle of bile). The ancients supposed that the poison of serpents lay in the gall (see Job 20:14 ).
