5. Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary
   (1.) Hebrew halabh, "new milk", milk in its fresh state (Judg.
   4:19). It is frequently mentioned in connection with honey (Ex.
   3:8; 13:5; Josh. 5:6; Isa. 7:15, 22; Jer. 11:5). Sheep (Deut.
   32:14) and goats (Prov. 27:27) and camels (Gen. 32:15), as well
   as cows, are made to give their milk for the use of man. Milk is
   used figuratively as a sign of abundance (Gen. 49:12; Ezek.
   25:4; Joel 3:18). It is also a symbol of the rudiments of
   doctrine (1 Cor. 3:2; Heb. 5:12, 13), and of the unadulterated
   word of God (1 Pet. 2:2).
     (2.) Heb. hem'ah, always rendered "butter" in the Authorized
   Version. It means "butter," but also more frequently "cream," or
   perhaps, as some think, "curdled milk," such as that which
   Abraham set before the angels (Gen. 18:8), and which Jael gave
   to Sisera (Judg. 5:25). In this state milk was used by
   travellers (2 Sam. 17:29). If kept long enough, it acquired a
   slightly intoxicating or soporific power.
     This Hebrew word is also sometimes used for milk in general
   (Deut. 32:14; Job 20:17).
