Evil-Favoredness

EVIL-FAVOREDNESS [ISBE]

EVIL-FAVOREDNESS - e-v'-l-fa'-verd-nes

The word is the translation of the Hebrew dabhar ra', lit "evil thing," and refers to the ritual unfitness for sacrifice of any animal which, though included in the class of clean beasts, yet possesses a blemish (see the word), or otherwise lacks beauty of symmetry, or is lean-fleshed (Dt 17:1 the King James Version; compare "ill blemish," Dt 15:21). We find these conditions combined in Gen 41:3,4,19,20,21,27, where the seven "ill-favored and lean-fleshed" kine of Pharaoh's dream are mentioned.
