The Definition of the word Ash
(Heb. o'ren, tremulous"), mentioned only Isa. 44:14 (R.V., "fir" "tree"). It is rendered "pine tree" both in the LXX. and Vulgate" "versions. There is a tree called by the Arabs aran, found still" "in the valleys of Arabia Petraea, whose leaf resembles that of" the mountain ash. This may be the tree meant. Our ash tree is not known in Syria.
