Acacia - Plants Animals Of Bible

Acacia. A large thorny tree with rough gnarled bark. The orange-brown wood was hard-grained, and it repelled insects. It bore long locust-like pods with seeds inside and produced round, fragrant clusters of yellow blossoms. Many species of acacia grew in the desert of Sinai, in southern Palestine, and in Egypt.

Acacia wood was used to build the ark of the covenant and the first tabernacle ( Exo 36:20; Exo 37:1). The acacia is called shittim and shittah in the KJV ( Exo 25:5; Exo 25:10; Isa 41:19).
