  26. In the Bible "early rain" signifies the rain of the autumn, ( 11:14 ) and "latter rain" the rain of spring. ( Proverbs 16:1 Proverbs 16:5 ) For six months in the year, from May to October, no rain falls, the whole land becomes dry, parched and brown. The autumnal rains are eagerly looked for, to prepare the earth for the reception of the seed. These, the early rains, commence about the latter end of October continuing through November and December. January and February are the coldest months, and snow falls, sometimes to the depth of a foot or more, at Jerusalem, but it does not lie long; it is very seldom seen along the coast and in the low plains. Rain continues to fall more or less during the month of March it is very rare in April. Robinson observes that there are not, at the present day, "any particular periods of rain or succession of showers which might be regarded as distinct rainy seasons. The whole period from October to March now constitutes only one continued season of rain, without any regularly-intervening term of prolonged fine weather. Unless therefore, there has been some change in the climate, the early and the latter rains, for which the husbandman waited with longing, seem rather to have implied the first showers of autumn--which revived the parched and thirsty soil and prepared it for the seed --and the later showers of spring, which continued to refresh and forward both the ripening crops and the vernal products of the fields."

  30. There are three Hebrew words used to denote the rains of different seasons, Geshem, the winter rain, "the rains." The heavy winter rain is mentioned in Genesis 7:12 ; Ezra 10:9 ; Cant 2:11 . The "early" or "former" rains commence in autumn in the latter part of October or beginning of November ( Deuteronomy 11:14 ; Joel 2:23 ; Compare Jeremiah 3:3 ), and continue to fall heavily for two months. Then the heavy "winter rains" fall from the middle of December to March. There is no prolonged fair weather in Palestine between October and March. The "latter" or spring rains fall in March and April, and serve to swell the grain then coming to maturity ( Deuteronomy 11:14 ; Hosea 6:3 ). After this there is ordinarily no rain, the sky being bright and cloudless till October or November. Rain is referred to symbolically in Deuteronomy 32:2 ; Psalms 72:6 ; Isaiah 44:3 Isaiah 44:4 ; Hosea 10:12 . These dictionary topics are fromM.G.
