BEANS (Broad Bean) Vicia faba


When David came to Mahanaim, Shobi the son of Nahash from Rabbah of the Ammonites… brought beds, basins, and earthen vessels, wheat, barley, flour, parched grain, beans and lentils, honey and curds and sheep and cheese from the herd, for David and the people with him to eat.

Then Jacob gave Esau bread and lentil stew, and he ate and drank and rose and went his way. 

– 2 Samuel 17:27-29, Genesis 25:34 (English Standard Version)

大衛到了瑪哈念,亞捫族的拉巴人拿轄的兒子朔比… 帶著被褥、盆、瓦器,還有小麥、大麥、麥麵、烤熟的穀穗、豆子、紅豆、炒豆、蜂蜜、奶油、綿羊、奶餅,供給大衛和跟隨他的人吃。
