Definition of MOUSE

  1. (the corn-eater ). The name of this animal occurs in ( Leviticus 11:29 ; 1 Samuel 6:4 1 Samuel 6:5 ; Isaiah 66:17 ) The Hebrew word is in all probability generic, and is not intended to denote any particular species of mouse. The original word denotes a field-ravager, and may therefore comprehend any destructive rodent. Tristram found twenty-three species of mice in Palestine. It is probable that in ( 1 Samuel 6:5 ) the expression "the mice that mar the land" includes and more particularly refers to the short-tailed field-mice (Arvicola agrestis , Flem.), which cause great destruction to the corn-lands of Syria.
