gal´ba - num ( חלבּנה , ḥelbenāh ; χαλβάνη , chalbánē ): A gum-resin which occurs in small, round, semitranslucent tears or in brownish yellow masses; has a pleasant aromatic odor and a bitter taste; and is today, at any rate, imported from Persia. It is derived from certain umbelliferous plants, Ferula galbaniflua and F. rubricaulis . It is mentioned in Exodus 30:34 as an ingredient of the holy incense, and also in Sirach 24:15: "a pleasant odor ... as galbanum.»
