Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

שָׁקֵד m

(1)  the almond tree; so called because of all trees it is the first to arouse and awake from the sleep of winter, Jeremiah 1:11 (where allusion is made to the signification of haste and ardour, which there is in this root).

(2) an almond, the nut of the almond, Genesis 43:11 Numbers 17:23 Ecclesiastes 12:5, יָנֵאץ שָׁקֵד “the almond is rejected” (by the old man who has no teeth), although really a delicate and delicious fruit. Others incorrectly, “the almond flourishes,” which they refer to whiteness of hair; but the flower of the almond is not hoary, but rose-coloured. See Cels. Hierob. i. p. 297.
