Gopher [EBD]

a tree from the wood of which Noah was directed to build the ark (Gen. 6:14). It is mentioned only there. The LXX. render this word by "squared beams," and the Vulgate by "planed wood." Other versions have rendered it "pine" and "cedar;" but the weight of authority is in favour of understanding by it the cypress tree, which grows abundantly in Chaldea and Armenia.


(pitch) wood. Only once mentioned -- (Genesis 6:14) Two principal conjectures have been proposed --
  1. That the "trees of gopher" are any trees of the resinous kind, such as pine, fir, etc.
  2. That Gopher is cypress.
