(Isa. 28:25, 27), the rendering of the Hebrew _ketsah_, “without doubt the Nigella sativa, a small annual of the order Ranunculacece, which grows wild in the Mediterranean countries, and is cultivated in Egypt and Syria for its seed.” It is rendered in margin of the Revised Version “black cummin.” The seeds are used as a condiment. In Ezek. 4:9 this word is the rendering of the Hebrew _kussemeth_ (incorrectly rendered “rye” in the Authorized Version of Ex. 9:32 and Isa. 28:25, but “spelt” in the Revised Version). The reading “fitches” here is an error; it should be “spelt.”
