Rye: =Rie, (Heb. kussemeth), found in
(Exodus 9:32; Isaiah 28:25) in all of which
the margins of the Authorized and of the Revised Versions have
"spelt." This Hebrew word also occurs in
(Ezekiel 4:9) where the
Authorized Version has "fitches' (q.v.) and the Revised Version
"spelt." This, there can be no doubt, was the Triticum spelta, a
species of hard, rough-grained wheat.
