FIREBRAND

fir'-brand ('udh, used for a burning stick taken out of the fire):

In Judges 15:4, 5 describing the "brands" (margin "torches") which Samson tied to the foxes' tails, the word is lappidh ("lamp"; see Judges 7:16, 20 the Revised Version (British and American), "torches"). Other words are ziqqim, "sparks," "flames" (fiery darts; Proverbs 26:18), and ziqoth (Isaiah 50:11); 'udh is used figuratively of angry men (Isaiah 7:4), and of those mercifully rescued from destruction (Amos 4:11 Zechariah 3:2; the Revised Version (British and American) "brand"). the Revised Version (British and American) gives "firebrand" as translation of moqedh (the King James Version "hearth") in Psalm 102:3, "My bones are burned as a firebrand" (margin "as a hearth").
