puls (zero'-im (Dan 1:12 margin, "herbs"), zere'onim (Dan 1:16); compare zerua`, "sowing seed" (Lev 11:37), and zeru'im, "things sown" (Isa 61:11)): (1) In Dan 1:12,16, it must mean herbs or vegetables grown from seeds; a vegetable diet is what is implied. (2) In 2 Sam 17:28, "pulse" after "parched" is not in the original, but is probably more correct than the translation in (1), as "pulse" usually implies leguminous plants, peas, beans, etc.
