Honey - Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
Honey[ 1,,G3192, meli ]
occurs with the adjective agrios, wild," in Matthew 3:4; Mark 1:6; in Revelation 10:9-Revelation 10:10, as an example of sweetness. As "honey" is liable to ferment, it was precluded from offerings to God, Leviticus 2:11. The liquid "honey" mentioned in Psalms 19:10; Proverbs 16:24 is regarded as the best; a cruse of it was part of the present brought to Ahijah by Jeroboam's wife, 1 Kings 14:3.
