Bible Animals: Dromedary
Dromedary in the ancient World.

Dromedary in the Bible. Three words thus rendered. In Isaiah and Jeremiah a finely-bred camel is indicated ; in the other passages the translation should be swift horse or stallion. - Animal Life in the Scriptures

Dromedary in Easton's Bible Dictionary (Isa. 60:6), an African or Arabian species of camel having only one hump, while the Bactrian camel has two. It is distinguished from the camel only as a trained saddle-horse is distinguished from a cart-horse. It is remarkable for its speed (Jer. 2:23). Camels are frequently spoken of in partriarchal times (Gen. 12:16; 24:10; 30:43; 31:17, etc.). They were used for carrying burdens (Gen. 37:25; Judg. 6:5), and for riding (Gen. 24:64). The hair of the camel falls off of itself in spring, and is woven into coarse cloths and garments (Matt. 3:4). (See CAMEL)
