Grasshopper
        belongs to the class of neuropterous insects called Gryllidae.
        This insect is not unknown in Israel.
        In Judg. 6:5; 7:12; Job 39:30; Jer. 46:23, where the
        Authorized Version has "grasshopper," the Revised Version more
        correctly renders the Hebrew word ('arbeh) by "locust." This is
        the case also in Amos 7:1; Nah. 3:17, where the Hebrew word
        "gob" is used; and in Lev. 11:22; Num. 13:33; Eccl. 12:5; Isa.
        40:22, where "hagab" is used. In all these instances the proper
        rendering is probably "locust" (q.v.).
