Cheese

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

  1. 1 Sam. 17:18, “ten cheeses;” i.e., ten sections of curd.

  2. 2 Sam. 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.
