Job 10:10; 1 Samuel 17:18; 2 Samuel 17:29. The modern Arabs use either butter, or coagulated buttermilk dried so as to be hard. Our "butter" means in derivation "cheese of kine." In ancient Palestine probably by "cheese" is meant milk compressed in cakes, salted, soft when new, but soon becoming hard and dry.
