Fruit
        a word as used in Scripture denoting produce in general, whether
        vegetable or animal. The Hebrews divided the fruits of the land
        into three classes:,
        (1.) The fruit of the field, "corn-fruit" (Heb. dagan); all
        kinds of grain and pulse.
        (2.) The fruit of the vine, "vintage-fruit" (Heb. tirosh);
        grapes, whether moist or dried.
        (3.) "Orchard-fruits" (Heb. yitshar), as dates, figs, citrons,
        etc.
        Injunctions concerning offerings and tithes were expressed by
        these Hebrew terms alone (Num. 18:12; Deut. 14:23). This word
        "fruit" is also used of children or offspring (Gen. 30:2; Deut.
        7:13; Luke 1:42; Ps. 21:10; 132:11); also of the progeny of
        beasts (Deut. 28:51; Isa. 14:29).
        It is used metaphorically in a variety of forms (Ps. 104:13;
        Prov. 1:31; 11:30; 31:16; Isa. 3:10; 10:12; Matt. 3:8; 21:41;
        26:29; Heb. 13:15; Rom. 7:4, 5; 15:28).
        The fruits of the Spirit (Gal. 5:22, 23; Eph. 5:9; James 3:17,
        18) are those gracious dispositions and habits which the Spirit
        produces in those in whom he dwells and works.
