Treasury of Scripture
And over the olive trees and the sycomore trees that were in the low plains was Baalhanan the Gederite: and over the cellars of oil was Joash:
1 Kings 4:7 And Solomon had twelve officers over all Israel, which provided victuals for the king and his household...
the sycamore trees. The Hebrew shikmin, Syriac shekmo, and Arabic jummeez, is the (), or sycomore, of the Greeks, so called from () a fig-tree, and () a mulberry tree, because it resembles the latter in its leaves, and the former in its fruits. `The sycamore,' say Mr. Norded, `is of the height of a beech, and bears its fruit in a manner quite different from other trees: it has them on the trunk itself, which shoots out little sprigs, in form of grape stalks, at the end of which grow the fruit close to one another, almost like a cluster of grapes. The tree is always green, and bears fruit several times in the year, without observing any certain seasons; for I have seen some sycamores that have given fruit two months after others. The fruit has the figure and smell of real figs, but is inferior to them in the taste, having a disgusting sweetness. Its colour is a yellow, inclining to an ochre, shadowed by a flesh colour. In the inside it resembles the common figs, excepting that it has a blackish colouring with yellow spots. This sort of tree is pretty common in Egypt; the people, for the greater part, live on its fruit, and think themselves well regaled when they have a piece of bread, a couple of sycamore figs, and a pitcher of water.'
1 Kings 20:27 And the children of Israel were numbered, and were all present, and went against them...
