 flow·ers /ˈflaʊ(ə)rz/ 名詞 複數

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    Very few species of flowers are mentioned in the Bible although
    they abounded in Palestine. It has been calculated that in
    Western Syria and Palestine from two thousand to two thousand
    five hundred plants are found, of which about five hundred
    probably are British wild-flowers. Their beauty is often alluded
    to (Cant. 2:12; Matt. 6:28). They are referred to as affording
    an emblem of the transitory nature of human life (Job 14:2; Ps.
    103:15; Isa. 28:1; 40:6; James 1:10). Gardens containing flowers
    and fragrant herbs are spoken of (Cant. 4:16; 6:2).
