sum'-er (qayits; Aramaic qayiT (Daniel 2:35), from quts quT, "to cut off," "to pluck or gather fruit," hence, the time of fruit, summer (2 Samuel 16:1, 2 Jeremiah 40:10, 12); theros (Matthew 24:32 Luke 21:30)): The Hebrew verb, mentioned above, occurs in Isaiah 18:6, "to summer," used of the ravenous birds feeding upon carcasses of the slain. The term "summer parlor" in Judges 3:20 (compare 3:24) is literally, "upper room," and is so rendered in the Revised Version (British and American). The summer was the dry season extending from April to October when usually no rain falls. Hence, the "drought of summer" (Psalm 32:4).
