Nave's Topical Bible
Honey: 1. Heb. ya'ar, occurs only (1 Samuel 14:25,27,29; The Song of Solomon 5:1) where it denotes the honey of bees. Properly the word signifies a forest or copse, and refers to honey found in woods.

2. Nopheth, honey that drops (Psalms 19:10; Proverbs 5:3; The Song of Solomon 4:11)

3. Debash denotes bee-honey (Judges 14:8) but also frequently a vegetable honey distilled from trees (Genesis 43:11; Ezekiel 27:17) In these passages it may probably mean "dibs," or syrup of grapes, i.e., the juice of ripe grapes boiled down to one-third of its bulk.

4. Tsuph, the cells of the honey-comb full of honey

(Proverbs 16:24; Psalms 19:10)

5. "Wild honey" (Matthew 3:4) may have been the vegetable honey distilled from trees, but rather was honey stored by bees in rocks or in trees (Deuteronomy 32:13; Psalms 81:16; 1 Samuel 14:25-29) Canaan was a "land flowing with milk and honey" (Exodus 3:8) Milk and honey were among the chief dainties in the earlier ages, as they are now among the Bedawin; and butter and honey are also mentioned among articles of food

(Isaiah 7:15) The ancients used honey instead of sugar

(Psalms 119:103; Proverbs 24:13) but when taken in great quantities it caused nausea, a fact referred to in (Proverbs 25:16,17) to inculcate moderation in pleasures. Honey and milk also are put for sweet discourse (The Song of Solomon 4:11)
