Herbs From The Bible....


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!
