בָּשְׁנָה shame (from the root בּוֹשׁ), Hosea 10:6. Nouns ending in the syllable נָה, נָא, added to the root are also found in Chaldee (see אֻשַּׁרְנָא ), and more frequently in Ethiopic; see Ludolfi Gramm. Ethiop. p. 90. It is rendered, very unsuitably, by Michaëlis (Suppl. p. 233), sackcloth, or mourning garment, by comparison with the Arab. ثَسَانَةُ sackcloth of coarse flax, but sackcloth of linen was not used for mourning garments. The common interpretation is sufficiently defended by the parallelism, and no new sense need be sought.
