Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

סָרָב (for סַרָב, of the form קַטָּל), m. a rebel, Ezekiel 2:6. Some of the Hebrew writers have explained סָרָבִים to be thorns; and Castell, in Heptagl. nettles (by comparison with סְרַף to burn); but the common opinion has been rightly defended by Celsius, in Hierob. ii. page 222; (his opinion is given incorrectly by Simonis).
