Notes Laurestinus

I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, the shittah tree, and the myrtle, and the oil tree; I will set in the desert the fir tree, and the pine, and the box tree together.

Isaiah 41:19 (KJV)

I will put in the wilderness the cedar, the acacia, the myrtle, and the olive; I will set in the desert the cypress, the plane and the pine together.

Isaiah 41:19 (RSV)

In the wilderness I shall set the cedar tree, the acacia, and the myrtle, and the oil tree. In the desert plain I shall place the juniper tree, the ash and the cypress at the same time.

Isaiah 41:19 (NWT)

The glory of Lebanon shall come unto thee, the fir tree, the pine tree, and the box together, to beautify the place of my sanctuary; and I will make the place of my feet glorious.

Isaiah 60:13 (KJV)

The glory of Lebanon shall come to you, the cypress, the plane, and the pine, to beautify the place of my sanctuary; and I will make the place of my feet glorious.

Isaiah 60:13 (RSV)

To you the very glory of Lebanon will come, the juniper tree, the ash tree and the cypress at the same time, in order to beautify the place of my sanctuary; and I shall glorify the very place of my feet.

Isaiah 60:13 (NWT)

The King James version calls it box (which suggests Buxus to most American botanists), the Revised Standard version calls it plane (which suggests Platanus to most American botanists), and the New World Translation calls it ash (which suggests Fraxinus to most American botanists). But Israeli botanist Michael Zohary says that only Viburnum tinus has the slightest linguistic support to represent the Hebrew tidhar in the two Isaiah passages. He is basing this on the Aramaic translation of the Targum Yonathan, which renders tidhar as mornian, which is cognate with the Arabic murran. Murran is the only Arabic name for Viburnum tinus. Having only one indication for this interesting Mediterranean species, I resort once more to the generic approach. Except for the dropsy indication, all the activities and indications below are listed for other species of the big genus Viburnum (e.g., those followed by VAD are from Mediterranean V. lantana or North American V. prunifolium).
