[COLORS]

ATS Bible Dictionary
Scarlet

A color much prized by the ancients, Exodus 25:4 26:1,31,36. It is assigned as a merit of Saul, that he clothed the daughters of Israel in scarlet, 2 Samuel 1:24. So the diligent and virtuous woman is said to clothe her household in scarlet, Proverbs 31:21. The depth and strength of the color are alluded to in Isaiah 1:18; and it is used as a symbol of profligacy in Revelation 17:3,4. This color was obtained from the Coccus Ilicis of Linnaeus, a small insect found on the leaves of a species of oak, the Quercus Cocciferus, in Spain and the countries on the eastern part of the Mediterranean, which was used by the ancients for dyeing a beautiful crimson or deep scarlet color, and was supposed by them to be the berry of a plant or tree. It is the Kermez of the Materia Medica. As a dye it has been superseded in modern times by the cochineal insect, Coccus Cactus, which gives a more brilliant but less durable color. See PURPLE.

Easton's Bible Dictionary
This dye was obtained by the Egyptians from the shell-fish Carthamus tinctorius; and by the Hebrews from the Coccus ilicis, an insect which infests oak trees, called kermes by the Arabians.

This colour was early known (Genesis 38:28). It was one of the colours of the ephod (Exodus 28:6), the girdle (8), and the breastplate (15) of the high priest. It is also mentioned in various other connections (Joshua 2:18; 2 Samuel 1:24; Lamentations 4:5; Nahum 2:3). A scarlet robe was in mockery placed on our Lord (Matthew 27:28; Luke 23:11). "Sins as scarlet" (Isaiah 1:18), i.e., as scarlet robes "glaring and habitual." Scarlet and crimson were the firmest of dyes, and thus not easily washed out.

Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
1. (n.) A deep bright red tinged with orange or yellow, -- of many tints and shades; a vivid or bright red color.

2. (n.) Cloth of a scarlet color.

3. (a.) of the color called scarlet; as, a scarlet cloth or thread.

4. (v. t.) To dye or tinge with scarlet.
