(14) Spikenard.--See Note, Song of Solomon 1:12. Saffron; Heb. carchom; only here. The Arabic name is still k-rk-m = Crocus sativus, a well-known bulb of the order Iridace?. The pistil and stigma. dried, form the saffron.

Calamus.--Heb. kaneh. (Comp. kaneh bosem = sweet calamus, Exodus 30:23; k. hottov--sweet cane, Jeremiah 6:20.) There are many sweet grasses in India and the East. Andropogon calamus aromaticus has been identified (Royle) with the "reed of fragrance" of Exodus, and Jeremiah's "good reed from a far country," but the identification is not to be implicitly accepted. (See Bible Educator, Vol. I., p. 245.)

Cinnamon.--Heb. kinnamon probably included Cinnamomum Zeylanicum (cinnamon) and Cinnamomum cassia (Cassia lignea). (See Bible Educator, Vol. I., p. 245.) The rind of the plant is the "cinnamon" in use. The plant belongs to the family of laurels, and grows in Ceylon, on the Malabar coast, and in East Indian Islands. It attains a height of from twenty to thirty feet, having numerous boughs, bearing leaves of a scarlet colour when young, but changing to a bright green, and white blossoms.

Aloes.--See Note, Numbers 24:6.

With all the chief spices.--"That in thy sweet all sweets encloses" (H. Constable).
