Din dicționarul Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary :

  Heath
     Heb. 'arar, (Jer. 17:6; 48:6), a species of juniper called by
     the Arabs by the same name ('arar), the Juniperus sabina or
     savin. "Its gloomy, stunted appearance, with its scale-like
     leaves pressed close to its gnarled stem, and cropped close by
     the wild goats, as it clings to the rocks about Petra, gives
     great force to the contrast suggested by the prophet, between
     him that trusteth in man, naked and destitute, and the man that
     trusteth in the Lord, flourishing as a tree planted by the
     waters" (Tristram, Natural History of the Bible).
