[LOCUST]

ATS Bible Dictionary
Beetle

In Le 11:22, a species of locust.

Easton's Bible Dictionary
(Hebrews hargol, meaning "leaper"). Mention of it is made only in Leviticus 11:22, where it is obvious the word cannot mean properly the beetle. It denotes some winged creeper with at least four feet, "which has legs above its feet, to leap withal." The description plainly points to the locust (q.v.). This has been an article of food from the earliest times in the East to the present day. The word is rendered "cricket" in the Revised Version.
Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
1. (n.) A heavy mallet, used to drive wedges, beat pavements, etc.

2. (n.) A machine in which fabrics are subjected to a hammering process while passing over rollers, as in cotton mills; -- called also beetling machine.

3. (v. t.) To beat with a heavy mallet.

4. (v. t.) To finish by subjecting to a hammering process in a beetle or beetling machine; as, to beetle cotton goods.

5. (v. t.) Any insect of the order Coleoptera, having four wings, the outer pair being stiff cases for covering the others when they are folded up. See Coleoptera.

6. (v. i.) To extend over and beyond the base or support; to overhang; to jut.

BEETLE

be'-t'-l (the Revised Version (British and American) CRICKET; chargol; See LOCUST): This name occurs only in Leviticus 11:22 as one of four winged Jumping insects (sherets ha-`oph) which may be eaten. It certainly is not a beetle and is probably not a cricket. Probably all four are names of locusts, of which more than 30 species have been described from Syria and Palestine, and for which there are at least 8 Arabic names in use, though with little distinction of species. Closely allied to chargol are the Arabic charjalet, a troop of horses or a flight of locusts, from charjal, "to gallop," and harjawan, "a wingless locust."
