Boar

Easton’s Bible Dictionary

Boar : occurs only in Psalm 80:13. The same Hebrew word is elsewhere rendered "swine" (Leviticus 11:7; Deuteronomy 14:8; Proverbs 11:22; Isaiah 65:4; 66:3,17). The Hebrews abhorred swine's flesh, and accordingly none of these animals were reared, except in the district beyond the Sea of Galilee. In the psalm quoted above the powers that destroyed the Jewish nation are compared to wild boars and wild beasts of the field.
