hay

Properly so called, hay was not in use among the Hebrews; straw was used instead. They cut the grass green, as it was needed.

The word rendered “hay” in Proverbs 27:25 means the first shoots of the grass. In Isaiah 15:6, the Revised Version has correctly “grass,” where the Authorized Version has “hay.”
