CRIMSON, ?????, 2Ch 2:7; 3:14, the name of a colour. Bochart supposes it to be the cochlea purpuraria, or purple from a kind of shell-fish taken near Mount Carmel. But as the name of the mount is said to mean a vineyard, one may rather suppose the colour to signify that of grapes; like the redness of the vesture of him who trod the wine-press, Isa 63:1-2. What our version renders crimson, Isa 1:18; Jer 4:30, should be scarlet.
