Bitter Herbs, literally bitters. There has been much difference of opinion respecting the kind of herbs denoted by this word.

It however seems very doubtful whether any particular herbs were intended by so general a term as bitters; it is far more probable that it denotes whatever bitter herbs, obtainable in the place where the Passover was eaten, might be fitly used with meat.
