 east wind
      n : a wind from the east [syn: easter, easterly]

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

 East wind
    the wind coming from the east (Job 27:21; Isa. 27:8, etc.).
    Blight caused by this wind, "thin ears" (Gen. 41:6); the
    withered "gourd" (Jonah 4: 8). It was the cause and also the
    emblem of evil (Ezek. 17:10; 19:12; Hos. 13:15). In Palestine
    this wind blows from a burning desert, and hence is destitute of
    moisture necessary for vegetation.
