In 1 Kings 19:4 , a tree under which Elijah the prophet rested as he fled the wrath of Jezebel. The same plant is mentioned in Job 30:4 and Psalm 120:4 . The Hebrew word thus translated probably refers to a kind of shrub that grows in the Arabian deserts. Modern translations read “broom.” See Broom Tree .
