Beetle: (Heb. hargol, meaning "leaper"). Mention of it is made only in
(Leviticus 11:22) where it is obvious the word cannot mean properly the
beetle. It denotes some winged creeper with at least four feet,
"which has legs above its feet, to leap withal." The description
plainly points to the locust (q.v.). This has been an article of food
from the earliest times in the East to the present day. The word is
rendered "cricket" in the Revised Version.
