Wheel: (Heb. galgal;) rendered "wheel" in
(Psalms 83:13) and "a rolling thing" in
(Isaiah 17:13) R.V. in both, "whirling dust"). This word has been
supposed to mean the wild artichoke, which assumes the form of a
globe, and in autumn breaks away from its roots, and is rolled about
by the wind in some places in great numbers.
