This work explores the meaning of the word in the Hebrew Bible, particularly in the context of agricultural jargon. Based on an examination of the etymology and history of translation of the term, as well as on a study of both ancient and modern winemaking technology, this work proposes that denotes a young, immature wine that has not undergone secondary or malo-lactic fermentation. This understanding sheds light on the term, which is shown to have connotations of fertility and divine blessing, freshness and sacramentality and hope. This work contends that interpreting in this way supplements the meaning of the Biblical passages in which it occurs.
