Easton's Bible Dictionary
Of a tree. The olive-leaf mentioned Genesis 8:11. The barren fig-tree had nothing but leaves (Matthew 21:19; Mark 11:13). The oak-leaf is mentioned Isaiah 1:30; 6:13. There are numerous allusions to leaves, their flourishing, their decay, and their restoration (Leviticus 26:36; Isaiah 34:4; Jeremiah 8:13; Dan. 4:12, 14, 21; Mark 11:13; 13:28). The fresh leaf is a symbol of prosperity (Psalm 1:3; Jeremiah 17:8; Ezek. 47:12); the faded, of decay (Job 13:25; Isaiah 1:30; 64:6; Jeremiah 8:13).

Leaf of a door (1 Kings 6:34), the valve of a folding door.

Leaf of a book (Jeremiah 36:23), perhaps a fold of a roll.

Something which is like a leaf in being wide and thin and having a flat surface, or in being attached to a larger body by one edge or end; as : (a) A part of a book or folded sheet containing two pages upon its opposite sides. (b) A side, division, or part, that slides or is hinged, as of window shutters, folding doors, etc. (c) The movable side of a table. (d) A very thin plate; as, gold leaf.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
LEAF; LEAVES

lef, levz: Used in three different senses, with reference:

(1) To trees (`aleh, "a coming up"), Genesis 3:7; Genesis 8:11 Leviticus 26:36 (Tereph); Ezekiel 17:9; phullon. Figuratively

(a) of spiritual blessings (Ezekiel 47:12; compare Revelation 22:2) and prosperity (Psalm 1:3);

(b) of moral decay (Isaiah 64:6), and

(c) of a formal, empty profession (Matthew 21:19).

(2) To a book (deleth), Jeremiah 36:23 (margin "columns"; see 36:2); as the parchment was gradually unfolded the successive columns could be read.

(3) To doors (tsela`, "side," qela`,"a screen," "hanging"), 1 Kings 6:34. The door of the Holy Place consisted of two halves, but each half had two leaves (compare Ezekiel 41:24).
