Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

דְּבַשׁ with suff. דִּבְשִׁי m., honey [“so called as being soft like a kneaded mass”]. Arab. دِبْسُ, Syr. ܪܶܒܫܐܳ id. Maltese dibsi, yellow, i.e. honey colour, No verb from which this noun can come exists in the Phœnicio-Shemitic languages; but there is also formed from such a verb, Gr. τιθαιβώσσω to make honey, Od. xiii. 106. Specially it is

(1) honey of bees, Leviticus 2:11; 1 Samuel 14:26, 27 1 Samuel 14:27, 29 1 Samuel 14:29, 43 1 Samuel 14:43; Proverbs 16:24, 24:13, etc. Used of wild or wood honey, Deuteronomy 32:13 Psal. 81:17, מִצּוּר דְּבַשׁ אַשְׂבִּיעֶךָּ “with honey out of the rock would I have supplied thee.”

(2) honey of grapes, i.e. must or new wine boiled down to a third or half; (Gr. ἕψημα, Lat. sapa, defrutum, Ital. musto cotto;) which is now commonly carried into Egypt out of Palestine, especially out of the district of Hebron (comp. Russel’s Natural History of Aleppo, p. 20); Genesis 43:11; Ezekiel 27:17.

[“Milk and honey are often joined together as being delicacies provided by nature, Ezekiel 8:17, 13:8 33:3 Leviticus 20:24; Numbers 13:27 used of very pleasant discourse, Song of Solomon 4:11.”]
