Psalms 78:47, sycamore, Gr. σύκομορος, συκάμινος, a very frequent tree in the lower districts of Palestine, resembling the mulberry tree in its leaves and appearance, with fruit like that of the fig, but more difficult of digestion (Dioscorid. i. 182, compare the etymology); these grow from the wood itself of the branches, and they are cultivated only by persons of the lowest condition (see בָּלַס ). See Cels. Hierob. i. p. 310. Warnekros, Natural Hist. of the Sycomore, in Repert. f. Morgenl. Litt. fasc. 11, 12.
