I can't stop researching herbs , but then if you knew me personally you would know that I can't stop researching many things.
Many references are made in the Bible to a wide variety of herbs.
Due to many different translations of the same verse, inconsistencies will be found.
These are some of the herbs talked about in the Bible .
There may be others, it is a very time consuming job and I'm far from being perfect...so if I have left something out and you know it, I would love to hear from you.
Aloe......is believed to be the only tree decended to man from the Garden of Eden.
( Numbers 24:6)
Coriander......referenced several times in the Old Testament.
( Exodus 16:31)
Cumin......native to the upper areas of the Nile, mentioned in the Bible, along with mint and dill, when Jesus reproved the scribes.
( Matthew 23:23)
Garlic......mentioned only once that I can find. It was held in high esteem by the ancient Egyptians.
( Numbers 11:5)
Hyssop......known as the holy herb.
( Psalms 51:7)
Mustard......( Matthew 13:31)
Rose......( Isaiah 35:1)
Rue......"herb of grace" ( Luke: 1:42)
Wormwood......( Jeremiah 23:15)
What an awesome history we have to learn from and pattern our lives by.
Blessings of abundance this beautiful season!
