(Strong's #3797 — Adjective — opsimos — op'-sim-os )

akin to opse and opsios (see LATE), denotes "late," or "latter," and is used of "the latter rain" in James 5:7 (the most authentic mss. omit huetos, "rain;" some have karpos, "fruit"); this rain falls in March and April, just before the harvest, in contrast to the early rain, in October. In the Sept., Deuteronomy 11:14 ; Proverbs 16:15 ; Jeremiah 5:24 ; Hosea 6:3 ; Joel 2:23 ; Zechariah 10:1 .

Note: For "latter" (husteros) in the AV of 1 Timothy 4:1 see LATER , and for 2 Peter 2:20 see LAST.
