Bible Animals: Frog
Frog in the Ancient World

Frog in Easton's Bible Dictionary (Heb. tsepharde'a, meaning a "marsh-leaper"). This reptile is mentioned in the Old Testament only in connection with one of the plagues which fell on the land of Egypt (Ex. 8:2- 14; Ps. 78:45; 105:30). In the New Testament this word occurs only in Rev. 16:13, where it is referred to as a symbol of uncleanness. The only species of frog existing in Israel is the green frog (Rana esculenta), the well-known edible frog of the Continent.

Frog in Smiths Bible Dictionary a well-known amphibious animal of the genus Rana. The mention of this reptile in the Old Testament is confined to the passage in Ex 8:2-7 etc., in which the plague of frogs is described, and to Ps 78:45; 105:30 In the New Testament the word occurs once only, in Re 16:13 There is no question as to the animal meant. The only known species of frog which occurs at present in Egypt is the Rana esculenta, the edible frog of the continent.

Frog in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE (tsephardea`; compare Arabic dafda` (Ex 8:2 ff; Ps 78:45; 105:30); batrachos (Rev 16:13)): The references in Psalms, as well as in Exodus, are to the plague of flogs. In Rev 16:13 we have, "And I saw coming out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits, as it were frogs." The word tsephardea` probably referred both to frogs and to toads, as does the Arabic dafda`. In Israel and Syria Rana esculenta, Bufo viridis and Hyla arborea are common. According to Mr. Michael J. Nicoll, assistant director of the Zoological Gardens at Gizah, near Cairo, the commonest Egyptian species are Rana mascariensis and Bufo regularis. Rana esculenta, Bufo viridis and Bufo vittatus are also found, but are much less common. Alfred Ely Day

Frog in Wikipedia Frog. Though not rare in Israel, this word is only mentioned in the Old Testament in connection with the second plague of Egypt. Two species of frogs are known to live in the Holy Land: the rana esculenta, or common edible frog, and the hyla arborea, or green tree-frog. The former throngs wherever there is water. In Apoc., xvi, 13, the frog is the emblem of unclean spirits.
