Cow

[BULL, BULLOCK]

Easton's Bible Dictionary
A cow and her calf were not to be killed on the same day (Leviticus 22:28; Exodus 23:19; Deuteronomy 22:6, 7). The reason for this enactment is not given. A state of great poverty is described in the words of Isaiah 7:21-25, where, instead of possessing great resources, a man shall depend for the subsistence of himself and his family on what a single cow and two sheep could yield.
Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
1. (n.) A chimney cap; a cowl

2. (n.) The mature female of bovine animals.

3. (n.) The female of certain large mammals, as whales, seals, etc.

4. (v. t.) To depress with fear; to daunt the spirits or courage of; to overawe.

5. (n.) A wedge, or brake, to check the motion of a machine or car; a chock.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
COW; KINE

kou, kin (baqar (compare Arabic baqar, "cow"); `eghlath baqar (Isaiah 7:21); parah (compare Arabic furar, "young of a sheep, goat, or cow"); paroth `aloth (1 Samuel 6:7, 10), "milch kine," from `ul, "to suckle"; 'eleph): In Amos 4:1, the term, "kine of Bashan," is applied to the voluptuous women of Samaria. In Genesis 41:1-36 is the narration of Pharaoh's dream of the seven fat and seven lean kine. In Isaiah's vision (Isaiah 11:7) we have: "And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together." Cows do not seem to have been sacrificed. The sacrifice of the kine that brought the ark back from the Philistines (1 Samuel 6:14) was due to the exceptional circumstances.

See CALF; CATTLE.
