International Standard Bible Encyclopedia

puls (zero'-im (Daniel 1:12 margin, "herbs"), zere'onim (Daniel 1:16); compare zerua`, "sowing seed" (Leviticus 11:37), and zeru'im, "things sown" (Isaiah 61:11)):

(1) In Daniel 1:12, 16, it must mean herbs or vegetables grown from seeds; a vegetable diet is what is implied.

(2) In 2 Samuel 17:28, "pulse" after "parched" is not in the original, but is probably more correct than the translation in (1), as "pulse" usually implies leguminous plants, peas, beans, etc.
