(2) plur. אוֹרוֹת herbs, green herbs, 2 Kings 4:39 from the idea of brightness being in the Phœnicio-Shemitic languages applied to verdure and flowers. Comp. נָצַץ Arab. انوار lights and flowers. In the cognate languages it may be compared with the Samarit. Ecc 1:1-18 Genesis 1:11, 12, for דֶּשֶׁא herb. So Isaiah 26:19 כִּי טַל אוֹרוֹת טַלֶּךָ “for the dew of herbs, is thy dew,” i.e. the dew of God shall refresh those that rise from the dead, like the dew refreshes plants. Compare Sir_46:12 49:10 others explain it “dew of light,” i.e. of life, or lifegiving dew, comp. אוֹר letter (d).
