Cheese

Easton’s Bible Dictionary

Cheese : (A.S. cese). This word occurs three times in the Authorized Version as the translation of three different Hebrew words:

  1. 1 Samuel 17:18, "ten cheeses;" i.e., ten sections of curd.
  2. 2 Samuel 17:29, "cheese of kine" = perhaps curdled milk of kine. The Vulgate version reads "fat calves."
  3. Job 10:10, curdled milk is meant by the word.
