Easton's Bible Dictionary


Isa 7:4, Amo 4:11, Zec 3:2, denotes the burnt end of a stick (Heb. 'ud); in Jdg 15:4, a lamp or torch, a flambeau (Heb. lappid); in Pro 26:18 (Eph 6:16), burning darts or arrows (Heb. zikkim).

International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia


fir'-brand ('udh, used for a burning stick taken out of the fire): In Jud 15:4,5 describing the "brands" (margin "torches") which Samson tied to the foxes' tails, the word is lappidh ("lamp"; see Jud 7:16,20 the Revised Version (British and American), "torches"). Other words are ziqqim, "sparks," "flames" (fiery darts; Pr 26:18), and ziqoth (Isa 50:11); ?udh is used figuratively of angry men (Isa 7:4), and of those mercifully rescued from destruction (Am 4:11; Zec 3:2; the Revised Version (British and American) "brand"). the Revised Version (British and American) gives "firebrand" as translation of moqedh (the King James Version "hearth") in Ps 102:3, "My bones are burned as a firebrand" (margin "as a hearth").

King James Dictionary

Firebrand: Firewood; Torch.

And say unto him, Take heed, and be quiet; fear not, neither be fainthearted for the two tails of these smoking FIREBRANDS, for the fierce anger of Rezin with Syria, and of the son of Remaliah. (Isaiah 7:4)
