Easton's Bible Dictionary
In Job 20:16, Isaiah 30:6; 59:5, the Hebrews word eph'eh is thus rendered. The Hebrew word, however, probably denotes a species of poisonous serpents known by the Arabic name of `el ephah. Tristram has identified it with the sand viper, a species of small size common in sandy regions, and frequently found under stones by the shores of the Dead Sea. It is rapid in its movements, and highly poisonous. In the New Testament echidne is used (Matthew 3:7; 12:34; 23:33) for any poisonous snake. The viper mentioned in Acts 28:3 was probably the vipera aspis, or the Mediterranean viper. (see ADDER.)
Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
1. (a.) Any one of numerous species of Old World venomous makes belonging to Vipera, Clotho, Daboia, and other genera of the family Viperidae.

2. (n.) A dangerous, treacherous, or malignant person.

VIPER

vi'-per ('eph`eh (Job 20:16 Isaiah 30:6; Isaiah 59:5); echidna (Matthew 3:7 = Luke 3:7 Matthew 12:34; Matthew 23:33 Acts 28:3)): Several vipers are found in Palestine, but it is not certain that 'eph`eh referred definitely to any of them.

See SERPENT.
