mice


Quick Reference

Ceremonially unclean creatures (Lev. 11: 29) for faithful Hebrews, but allegedly eaten by idolaters (Isa. 66: 17), who will suffer the consequences. Golden mice were placed in the Ark by the Philistines (1 Sam. 6) to symbolize the plague which was afflicting them. The hope was that, if they were carried back to Israel, the plague would cease.
