HELPS word-Studies

2915 krithḗbarley, the grain eaten by the common person, i.e. "poor man's bread" as opposed to using the more expensive grain (wheat). Barley was used "principally as food for horses" (Zod, Dict).

(Rev 6:6) – Unlike annual crops, olives and grapes take years to recover once devastated. The destruction of the oil and wine emphatically then conveys ongoing famine.

[A quart of wheat was the usual amount of food a working man ate per day.]
