Hazel occurs only once in the Old Testament, namely, in , where it indicates one of the kinds of rod from which Jacob peeled the bark and which he placed in the water-troughs of the cattle. Luz is translated hazel in the Authorized Version, as well as in several others; in some it is rendered by words equivalent to 'walnut,' but 'almond' appears to be its true meaning; for the same word denotes that tree in the Arabic language [ALMOND TREE].
