  13. There appear to be two or three varieties of the common goat, Hircus agagrus , at present bred in Palestine and Syria, but whether they are identical with those which were reared by the ancient Hebrews it is not possible to say. The most marked varieties are the Syrian goat(Capra mammorica, Linn.) and the Angora goat (Capra angorensis , Linn.), with fine long hair. As to the "wild goats," ( 1 Samuel 24:2 ; Job 39:1 ; Psalms 104:18 ) it is not at all improbable that some species of ibex is denoted. biblestudytools.com
  14. Heb. 'ez, the she-goat ( Genesis 15:9 ; 30:35 ; 31:38 ).

It literally means "strength," and points to the superior strength of the goat as compared with the sheep. biblestudytools.com

  21. There are two Hebrew words used to denote the undomesticated goat:, Yael , only in plural mountain goats ( 1 Samuel 24:2 ; Job 39:1 ; Ps.104:18). It is derived from a word meaning "to climb." It is the ibex, which abounded in the mountainous parts of Moab. And 'akko , only in Deuteronomy 14:5 , the wild goat. Goats are mentioned in the New Testament in Matthew 25:32 Matthew 25:33 ; Hebrews 9:12 Hebrews 9:13 Hebrews 9:19 ; 10:4 . They represent oppressors and wicked men ( Ezekiel 34:17 ; 39:18 ; Matthew 25:33 ). Several varieties of the goat were familiar to the Hebrews. They had an important place in their rural economy on account of the milk they afforded and the excellency of the flesh of the kid. They formed an important part of pastoral wealth ( Genesis 31:10 Genesis 31:12 Genesis 32:14 ; 1 Samuel 25:2 ). These dictionary topics are fromM.G.
