Only one word occurs with this signification in the New Testament: stethos = "bosom," "chest" (Lk 18:13; 23:48; Jn 13:25; 21:20).

See WAVE OFFERING.

Figurative: "The breasts of virginity," pressed and bruised (Ezek 23:3,8 the King James Version), indicative of Ezekiel's belief that Israel practiced idolatry in Egypt (compare Ezek 20:8). "To tear (pluck off) thy breasts" (Ezek 23:34) denotes the anguish of the people in parting with their beloved sin (compare Hos 2:2). "Its breast of silver" (Dan 2:32) is possibly expressive of the humanity and wealth of the Medo-Persian empire.
