Gold: 1. Heb. zahab, so called from its yellow colour (Exodus 25:11)

(1 Chronicles 28:18; 2 Chronicles 3:5)

2. Heb. segor, from its compactness, or as being enclosed or treasured up; thus precious or "fine gold" (1 Kings 6:20; 7:49)

3. Heb. paz, native or pure gold (Job 28:17; Psalms 19:10; 21:3) etc.

4. Heb. betzer, "ore of gold or silver" as dug out of the mine

(Job 36:19) where it means simply riches.

5. Heb. kethem, i.e., something concealed or separated

(Job 28:16,19; Psalms 45:9; Proverbs 25:12) Rendered "golden wedge" in

(Isaiah 13:12)

6. Heb. haruts, i.e., dug out; poetic for gold (Proverbs 8:10; 16:16)

(Zechariah 9:3)

Gold was known from the earliest times (Genesis 2:11) It was principally used for ornaments (Genesis 24:22) It was very abundant (1 Chronicles 22:14) (Nahum 2:9; Daniel 3:1) Many tons of it were used in connection with the temple (2 Chronicles 1:15) It was found in Arabia, Sheba, and Ophir (1 Kings 9:28; 10:1; Job 28:16) but not in Palestine. In (Daniel 2:38) the Babylonian Empire is spoken of as a "head of gold" because of its great riches; and Babylon was called by Isaiah (Isaiah 14:4) the "golden city" (R.V. marg., "exactress," adopting the reading marhebah, instead of the usual word madhebah).
