WAX, ????, Ps 22:14; 68:2; 97:5; Mic 1:4. Thus the LXX throughout, ?????, and vulgate cera; so there is no room to doubt but this is the true meaning of the word: and the idea of the root appears to be soft, melting, yielding, or the like, which properties are not only well known to belong to wax, but are also intimated in all the passages of Scripture in which this word occurs.
