Moth
        Heb. 'ash, from a root meaning "to fall away," as moth-eaten
        garments fall to pieces (Job 4:19; 13:28; Isa. 50:9; 51:8; Hos.
        5:12).
        Gr. ses, thus rendered in Matt. 6:19, 20; Luke 12:33. Allusion
        is thus made to the destruction of clothing by the larvae of the
        clothes-moth. This is the only lepidopterous insect referred to
        in Scripture.
