Easton's Bible Dictionary


(Heb. sadeh), a cultivated field, but unenclosed. It is applied to any cultivated ground or pasture (Gen 29:2; 31:4; 34:7), or tillage (Gen 37:7; 47:24). It is also applied to woodland (Psa 132:6) or mountain top (Jdg 9:32,36; 2Sa 1:21). It denotes sometimes a cultivated region as opposed to the wilderness (Gen 33:19; 36:35). Unwalled villages or scattered houses are spoken of as "in the fields" (Deu 28:3,16; Lev 25:31; Mar 6:36,56). The "open field" is a place remote from a house (Gen 4:8; Lev 14:7,53; 17:5). Cultivated land of any extent was called a field (Gen 23:13,17; 41:8; Lev 27:16; Rth 4:5; Neh 12:29).

Smith's Bible Dictionary


The Hebrew sadeh is applied to any cultivated ground, and in some instances in marked opposition to the neighboring wilderness. On the other hand the sadeh is frequently contrasted with what is enclosed, whether a vineyard, a garden or a walled town. In many passages the term implies what is remote from a house (Genesis 4:8; 24:63; 22:25) or settled habitation, as in the case of Esau (Genesis 25:27). The separate plots of ground were marked off by stones, which might easily be removed (19:14; 27:17) cf (Job 24:2; Proverbs 22:28; 23:10). The absence of fences rendered the fields liable to damage from straying cattle (Exodus 22:5) or fire (Exodus 22:6; 2 Samuel 14:30) hence the necessity of constantly watching flocks and herds. From the absence of enclosures, cultivated land of any size might be termed a field.
