In Genesis 41:35, 49, Proverbs 11:26, Joel 2:24 ("wheat"), the word thus translated (bar; i.e., "winnowed") means corn purified from chaff. With this corresponds the use of the word in the New Testament (Matthew 3:12; Luke 3:17; Acts 7:12). In Psalm 65:13 it means "growing corn."
In Genesis 42:1, 2, 19, Joshua 9:14, Nehemiah 10:31 ("victuals"), the word (sheber; i.e., "broken, " i.e., grist) denotes generally victuals, provisions, and corn as a principal article of food.
